Climate of the Carpathian Region (CARPATCLIM)

Description:

The CARPATCLIM project improved the basis of climate data in the Carpathian Region for applied regional climatological studies such as a Climate Atlas and/or drought monitoring. The aim was to investigate the fine temporal and spatial structure of the climate in the Carpathian Mountains and the Carpathian basin with unified methods. A freely available, high resolution gridded database has been produced for the Larger Carpathian Region (LCR), harmonizing historic climate data from 1961 - 2010.

For this purpose, the project contains three modules with related objectives:

Module 1: Improve the availability and accessibility of a homogeneous and spatially representative time series of climatological data for the LCR through data rescue, quality control, and data homogenization.

Module 2: Ensure Carpathian countries data harmonization with special emphasis on across-country harmonization and production of gridded climatologies per country.

Module 3: Develop a Climate Atlas as the basis for climate assessment and further applied climatological studies as well as for drought monitoring in the LCR in the frame of the European Drought Observatory.
