Precipitazioni: le grandi assenti

Dopo un autunno con precipitazioni abbondanti sul versante sudalpino, l’inverno ci ha riservato poca neve e i primi mesi del 2020 sono stati caratterizzati da scarse precipitazioni. Cosa ci indicano i modelli a lunga scadenza e quelli stagionali per i prossimi mesi? E quali sono le possibili conseguenze in caso di una primavera siccitosa?

Meeresspiegel steigt stärker als bisher angenommen

Die Gletscher, Permafrostböden und Ozeane weltweit verändern sich mit dem Klimawandel im Laufe des 21. Jahrhunderts markant. Dies zeigt der am Mittwoch in Monaco veröffentlichte neue Bericht des Weltklimarates (IPCC). Der Meeresspiegel wird bis 2100 um 43 bis 84 Zentimeter steigen und Gebiete unter Wasser setzen, in denen heute Hunderte von Millionen Menschen leben. Gletscher weltweit verlieren zwischen 2015 und 2100 18 bis 36 Prozent ihrer Masse, jene in Europa gar über 80 Prozent. Bei weiterhin hohen Treibhausgas-Emissionen könnten bis 2100 49 bis 89 Prozent der wenig tiefen Permafrostböden auftauen und damit an Stabilität einbüssen.

Action needed to prevent future conflict over the use and management of water in the Alpine region in times of climate change and growing demand

The climatic changes and economic development expected for the future will alter the availability and demand for water in the Alpine region. This can lead to more competition or new conflicts in water use, both locally and across borders. This Policy Brief highlights the needs for political action and management options to avoid potential water conflicts in future.
