Phenology: observations, monitoring and modelling across a range of scales
The timing of many phenological events of plants and animals is driven by temperature and other climatic parameters. Based on phenological observations valuable climate change indicators can be developed. On the other hand plant development itself has an impact on local and regional climatic parameters in temperate zones. Therefore, it should be considered in meteorological and climatological models.
Our ability to monitor plant phenology remotely, from satellites and cameras, for example, has greatly increased in recent years but we must also rely on in situ observations to track subtle differences between species in both the timing and duration of key phenophases which may contribute to the potential for carbon storage in mixed forest communities. Sources of useful phenology data and duration of the time-series are crucial to determine future responses of ecosystems to climate change.
The main focus of this session will be to determine the effectiveness of phenological data to analyse potential changes in land-atmosphere interactions in response to climate change. We invite presentations related to the following topics:
•Impact of extreme weather events on phenology-
•Use of phenology in agrometeorological impact models and in decision making
•Observing and recording phenology from in situ methods to remote sensing (satellites, phenocams, citizen science in phenology networks etc.)
•Use of future climate projections in phenology modelling
•Relationship between phenology and carbon and water fluxes across different ecosystems
