C12 Climate indicators on the local scale for past, present and future, and platform data management

DFG PAK 823-825 - Platform for Biodiversity and Ecosystem Monitoring and Research in South Ecuador

PI: Prof. Dr. Katja Trachte, Prof. Dr. Jörg Bendix

Within this project the local-limited area model (LAM) will be tested and adjusted to different ecosystems (Páramo, Rain Forest and Dry Forest) in the Andean mountains in order to make future climate predictions in these complex ecosystems. In a further step, a highly resolved spatial and temporal Climatic Indicator System (hrCIS) is developed to derive ecologically relevant climate change indicators, that are relevant for local climate future predictions. Uncertainties in the LAM are assessed and results are validated against observational data. The model is able to reproduce interannual variabilities of the climatic indicators – air temperature reveals an increasing trend, precipitation reveals no trend (1994 – 2015).
