Climate change

Climate change refers to any long-term changes, including natural variability and changes caused by human activity. Although these two components cannot be clearly distinguished from each other, it is clear that we must react appropriately to climate change and adapt to it.

Klimatická změna: vodní eroze na kukuřičném poli

 

Climate change and the impacts associated with it is a topic that resonates across the society nowadays. Rising temperatures and heat waves followed by droughts are ever increasing, as well as rainfall resulting in devastating floods. Landscape negatively affected by man and subjected to the burden of climate change becomes less able to provide the expected functions. This trend has culminated in recent decades, leading to a still more sensitive loss of soil fertility, biodiversity, and the capacity of the land to retain precious water.

Climate change is a long-term process, the same as adapting to it. It has been proven that inaction can cause considerably higher economic losses than the costs for taking measures of adaptation.

Impact of emission deposition in forests

The ecological stability of forests has been considerably impaired. Weakening due to air pollution, lack of groundwater, rising temperatures, outbreaks of insect pests, storms and other impacts – all this should lead to a change in forest management so that it results in more than just clearing up the damage.

Studies of runoff conditions

These studies are used to determine runoff and erosion conditions, to propose erosion and flood control measures and evaluate their effectiveness.
