- Title: Potential impact of climate change on agricultural water resources [change in...
The potential impact is defined as the change of natural plant growth days per year. A plant growth day is considered to be a day with neither water stress nor temperature stress. Temperature stress days is defined as a days where the average daily air temperature is below 5°C or above 35°C, whereas water stress days is defined as a days where the daily evapotranspiration is less than half of the potential daily evapotranspiration. Days where water stress would occur without the help of irrigation are not considered to be natural plant growth days.
Red indicates a decreasing number of natural plant growth days per year (decreasing potential impact) and green indicates an increasing number of natural plant growth days per year (increasing potential impact).
