FLUXPYR (2009-2012): trans-border Network for the determination and management of water, carbon and energy fluxes under climate change in agricultural and grassland systems in the Pyrenees

FLUXPYR (2009-2012) is a trans-border network for the determination and management of water, carbon and energy fluxes under climate change conditions in agricultural and grassland systems in the Pyrenees.

This 3-year Project (2009-2012) involves 11 partners from Spain, France and Andorra and is coordinated by the Forestry Technology Centre of Catalonia (CTFC). More than 50 researchers contribute to its success.

FLUXPYR operates through an INTERREG IV-A Programme with an overall budget of 2.2 M euros. It is co-financed by the European Union (EU) – European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), Generalitat de Catalunya (Departament de Medi Ambient i Habitatge – Oficina Catalana del Canvi Climàtic de Catalonia), and Conseil Régional Midi-Pyrénées.

The network integrates continuous and discrete flux and stocks assessments (e.g. micrometeorological towers, portable sensors), remote sensing (e.g. satellite and aerial images) and process-based modelling to assess the impacts of climate and land use change in the Pyrenees, and to propose guidelines for sustainable land and resource management.
