Mediterranean climate is characterized by mild, wet winters and hot, dry summers thus making the interested climatic zones among the most desirable for human inhabitation. Mediterranean climate zones are located in transitional midlatitude regions like the Mediterranean basin area, western North America as well as over small areas of western South America, Southern Africa and southern Australia. This classification based on Koppen-Geiger approach is well suited for identifying and analyzing the impacts of climate change on natural and anthropic ecosystems. The transitional character with sharp spatial gradients makes Mediterranean climate-type zones highly vulnerable to climate change. Future climate projections indicate an intensification of the seasonality over these regions, as well as potential migration of these climate regions towards the poles with the equatorward margins likely replaced by arid climate-type. For all mediterranean climate-type regions, the future is expected to provide large issues to face for biodiversity and water availability, including climate adaptation and mitigation measures.
This session aims bringing together studies on different aspects of climate and climate change focused on the Mediterranean climate-type regions of the world. Physical (including extremes, teleconnections, hydrological cycles) and biogeochemical (including biodiversity) approaches but also social aspects (including impacts and adaptation measures) are welcome, either in terms of observed past changes or future climate projections.
Solicited Speaker will be Prof Don McFarlane - School of Agriculture and Environment, University of Western Australia
