There is growing evidence that the rate of warming is amplified with elevation, such that high-mountain environments experience more rapid changes in temperature

On the Rhine–Main–Danube corridor no decrease in the performance of inland waterway transport due to extreme weather events is expected till 2050.

Across the Balkan Peninsula and Turkey climate change is particularly rapid, and especially summer temperatures are expected to increase strongly.

The impact of hydrological changes on navigation conditions has been studied for the Rhine-Main-Danube corridor, one of the most important waterways in Europe ...

The impacts of the simulated climate change on the air quality are rather weak for the mid-century 2041−2050 ...

The likely effects of climate change on the water resources of Bulgaria have been investigated for 2040–2069 and 2070–2099 compared with 1961–1990 ...
