In the research project the impact of climate change on the water resources of the Marganai forest will be predicted, through the development of a new experimental basin of the Marganai Forest and the definition of forestal, environemental and water resources plan strategies of the Marganai forest for future climate change scenarios. Activities of the research project include: 1) ecohydrological monitoring of the experimental basin of the Marganai forest (with a meteorological station, soil moisture probes, sap flux sensors, hydrometric station), 2) development of the ecohydrologic model of the Marganai forest, 3) strategies of forestal, environemental and water resources plans of the Marganai forest also for future climate change scenarios
