    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Thursday, January 1, 2015
    Objective: 

    This document is the product P93c of GEMINA project that aimed to collect the main results from the application of bias-correction and weather generators techniques to climate simulations to estimate weather-related geo-hydrological impacts in the Mediterranean area.

    This activity is carried out within WP A.2.17 "Analysis of geo-hydrological risk related to climate change" of GEMINA project. The main goal of WP A.2.17 is the analysis of climate change effects on occurrence and magnitude of landslides, floods and low flows hazards on some specific contexts in the Mediterranean.
