This action is necessary to quantify the changes in the climate trend of Palo Laziale and Nestos Delta that may have taken place in the last few decades at the local level and the consequent effects on the habitats of Palo Laziale Wood Nestos Delta SCI. 

At the first step of the Action, a geo-based climate database is created using data provided by the Integrated Agro-Meteorological Service (SIARL) of ARSIAL for Italy, and from the National Meteorological Authority and Laboratory of Meteorology of the School of Geology of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki for Greece. The data, conveniently elaborated, provide a precise picture of the local trend of temperature and precipitation over the last decades. It will thus be possible to assess the extent of climate change at the local level and to evaluate its effect on habitats (3170*, 5230*, 91M0 and 91E0*) regarding increased aridity due to the rise in temperatures and the decrease in precipitation. Based on the results and the conclusions of the climatic analyses, it will be possible to assess the water availability in these ecosystems, also crossing data with those from forest cover (action A5). The collected data will also be useful for the implementation of the Water Management Plan provided for in Action C5 to define the best strategies for the mitigation and adaptation to climate change. A final report describing the data achievement and processing will be drafted.

Beneficiary responsible for implementation:

Department of Environmental Biology, Sapienza University of Rome (DEB)

ARSIAL

IMFE (DEMETER)

DEB employs:

  • a Researcher, with experience in environmental modelling, for the validation of the protocol, the acquisition and analysis of climatic data, and supervision of the final report.
  • an Expert in climatic studies, specifically contracted, with experience in the creation of climatic databases and environmental modelling, which will gather data and create a georeferenced climatic database, and prepare a final report.
