Climate change and land use change: a multi-risk assessment of freshwater ecosystem services

A new study on Science of the Total Environment assessed the impacts of climate change and human activities on freshwater services: a focus on the Po river basin (Italy) and the Red River basin (Vietnam). Among the authors CMCC researchers Vuong Pham, Silvia Torresan, Andrea Critto and Antonio Marcomini

Hydrogeological risk: the effect of climate and environment

How climate change affects slope stability? The more interesting research and case studies for the evaluation of ongoing and future landslide activity to be presented at the session organized by the CMCC Foundation – REMHI Division at EGU 2018, on April 8-13, 2018, in Vienna, Austria. Deadline for abstract submission: 10 January 2018 […]

Mitigation: the terrestrial ecosystems potential

Deforestation, biomass burning, environmental pollution, land use changes can alter its balance. We are talking about the soil organic carbon, and given the current climate change an accurate knowledge about its quantity is a key factor to improve carbon sequestration in soils and implement mitigation strategies. The FAO-CMCC report “Global Soil Organic Carbon Database” and its global database map in support to researchers and policy makers in land management and planning activities […]

Land use changes: assessing climate change effects

The interplay between land use and climate change is essential in understanding land-based climate mitigation options and how societies will adapt to climate change in the future. 
An overview of the state-of-the-knowledge of the biophysical land cover changes (LCC) climate effects. Searching for some tools for policy makers […]

Geo-hydrological hazards: the case study of the Amalfi coast

Two studies by CMCC researchers G. Rianna, L. Comegna, P. Mercogliano and L. Picarelli from REMHI Division explores the effect of climate change on future variations in shallow landslide hazards for defining reliable adaptation measures […]

The role of land in climate and human dynamics: a review of major modelling approaches
