LifeWatch ERIC e-Science panEuropean Infrastructure for Biodiversity and Ecosystem Research is mainly aimed to facilitate the access to their distributed data, information and knowledge resources and services, also providing modelling capabilities for understanding the complexity of associated Climate Change processes for research and adaptation purposes, as well as addressed to decision makers and citizen scientists. One of our VREs focuses on the historical time-series study and climate change projections at high resolution, which will be generated by dynamical downscaling of the General Circulation Models (GCMs). To this purpose, the regional climate model Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) will be used to simulate high-mountains areas climate scenarios, and thus, solving the limitations of the vast spatial resolution of GCMs. The observational database will validate present WRF models-based simulations. This will create high-res regionalized projections in high mountains areas using the state-of-art of open-source geospatial tools.
