Purchase Climate Vulnerability - 1st Edition. Print Book & E-Book. ISBNThis topical volume of Pure and Applied Geophysics is presenting recent investigations of atmospheric and ocean properties, processes and climate of both basins, being inspired by presentations given in the Joint Congress of the 6th International Conference on Meteorology and Climatology of the Mediterranean & Challenges in Meteorology 5, held.
Presenting the analysis of climatological data from BC to the present day, this volume discusses climate variability and its interaction with the biosphere in the Mediterranean area. Different approaches are applied to describe and interpret climate variability and to denote trends.
The Mediterranean Sea is a sea connected to the Atlantic Ocean, surrounded by the Mediterranean Basin and almost completely enclosed by land: on the north by Southern Europe and Anatolia, on the south by North Africa and on the east by the gh the sea is sometimes considered a part of the Atlantic Ocean, it is usually referred to as a separate body of water.
This volume incorporates Parts 3 and 4 of the report, reviewing current knowledge of observed climate variability and trends in the Mediterranean, and including descriptions of available temperature and precipitation station and gridded data sets. Advancing the understanding of climate variability and predictability in the European-Mediterranean region has been among her main research contributions.
Most recently her interests have focused on the understanding of climate change and decadal variability and the years, her work has resulted in over 30 research papers in. Soil erosion is an issue in the Mediterranean slopes.
Erosion plots are useful to quantify erosion rates, but data are difficult to scale up to a slope level. Moreover, short observational frameworks are generally established, making it difficult to represent multi-year fluctuations.
This paper deals with the potential of parsimonious modelling to upscale plot erosion (~23 m2) at Monte Pino Cited by: 1.

There is a growing interest in predicting how plant communities will respond to the projected changes in climate (Parmesan & Yohe ).The functional trait‐based approach has emerged as a powerful tool to evaluate whether community responses to climatic variability are mediated by key functional attributes of their dominant species (Lavorel & Garnier ; Suding et by: Produced by the Mediterranean Climate Variability and Predictability Research Networking Project, this book reviews the evolution of the Mediterranean climate over the past two millennia with projections further into the twenty-first century as well as examining in detail various aspects of the Mediterranean region’s climate including Brand: Elsevier Science.
Currently, a book entitled “Mediterranean Climate Variability”, Eds: P. Lionello, P. Malanotte-Rizzoli and R. Boscolo, and published by Elsevier, will be available in April The book builds on the material presented in the white paper and has the same contributing authors; several of them also feature in this Newsletter issue.
Climate data. Climate data were obtained from Hijmans et al.  for the period –These data were generated through interpolation of average monthly climate data from weather stations on a 30 arc-second resolution grid (ca.

One of the most pressing challenges in the 21st century will be to balance societal needs for freshwater with the maintenance of aquatic biodiversity in the face of climate change.
Climate change and water withdrawals pose especially grave threats to stream biodiversity in arid regions, like the western US. Although many species have adaptations for withstanding drought, these limits will be.
