Cambiamenti climatici e impatti sui territori montani

Luca Mercalli, Daniele Cat Berro

Abstract


Mountain territories are particularly sensitive to climate change. In the Alps, the temperature rise of 1.3°C over the last century has reduced by half the ice cover and – in the lack of effective reductions in greenhouse emissions – by 2100 the additional thermal increase of 3-4°C could lead to the disappearance of glaciers below 3500 m and put at risk availability of water in the summer, biodiversity, forests and winter tourism. The Alps may become a workshop for the application of best practices for climate change mitigation, adaptation and resilience facing new environmental challenges.
