Project code: TI-LR-08-PID1395
Contract period: 01.01.2013 - 31.03.2015
Purpose of research: Basic research

Heavy rain, heat, storm or frost threatens agriculture and forestry. We analyse if such extreme weather events occur more frequently und become more severe (intensive), and we investigate, how they impact important crops und forest species. If we can foresee good options to reduce the damage potential of extreme weather events we prepare strategies and suggestion for practice und policy.
We have defined extreme weather events for agriculture, specialized crops, and tree species. First examinations of observed climate data as well as climate projection have already been conducted for a majority of extreme weather events and various crops.
