GIS-based assessment of the landform distribution of 2100 predicted climate change and its influence on biodiversity and natural protected areas in Romania

Potential effects of climate change include loss of biodiversity and ecodiversity due to direct influences and habitat changes and impacts on agricultural systems resulting into the decrease of productivity. While direct assessment is rarely possible, the evaluation methodology focused on statistical modelling. This study used the Geographical Information Systems to look at the spatial distribution of 2100 predicted temperatures in Romania by landform

Assessment of the long-term effects of global changes within the Romanian natural protected areas
Drought-related variables over the Barlad basin (Eastern Romania) under climate change scenarios. Catena, 141, pp. 92-99, 2016.

The goal of this study is the assessment of the future evolution of monthly temperature and precipitation and their influences exerted on droughts occurring in the Barlad river basin (Eastern Romania). We have used recent results of experiments based on regional and global climate models under the Representative Concentration Pathway (RCPs) scenarios (RCP 4.5 and RCP 8.5), which have been made accessible thanks to the EUROCORDEX initiative. The impact
