Design guideline for a climate projection data base and specific climate indices for roads: CliPDaR

The mission of CliPDaR is to issue a guideline setting a standard regarding the handling of climatological data and methods that shall serve as a basis for pan-European traffic infrastructure risk assessments. This includes a stepwise description of the ensemble approach starting from socio-economic scenarios over Global Climate Models (GCM) and selected downscaling methods to generate regional scale climate change projections, which can be used to drive impact models. Within this study we present this approach by calculating three climate indices that are associated with damages to road surface, supporting structure and drainage systems. These indices are calculated for 20 spots of the TEN and two future periods (2021-2050; 2071-2100) and compared to conditions of a time slice "1961-1990" from the so called "control run".
