Climate Change Impacts in Iran:

http://en.climate-change.ir/Climate-Change-Impacts-in-Iran_2240.html

 

Based on the research and assessment carried out during the Climate Change Enabling Activity Project under UNFCCC, and using the scenarios proposed by IPCC, it is estimated that if the CO2 concentration doubles by the year 2100, the average temperature in Iran will increases by 1.5 - 4.5ºC which will cause significant changes in water resources, energy demand, agricultural products, and coastal zones.
The “direct” adverse impacts of climate change include changes in precipitation and temperature patterns, water resources, sea level rise and coastal zone, agriculture and food production, forestry, drought frequency and intensity, and human health. The “indirect” adverse economic impacts result from the response measures taken by the developed countries.

Abstract

Iran as a main country of the Middle East is under intensive climate change impacts. In vice versa, high-level contribution of Iran to GHGs emissions depends on a major product of oil, largest reserves of gas and rapid urbanization. In this manuscript, the statistical evidences on climate change were investigated in global, regional and national scales. For this purpose, the main increasing of annual temperature and GHGs emissions were considered. Then the governmental agreements toward the many international adoptions and conventions on climate change were reviewed from Rio 1992 to NY 2016. It seems that the further technological research and development on exploration the novel methods in renewable energy applications and mitigation of GHGs emissions will be necessary in order to future adaptations.

Climate change is one of the main challenging issues in various countries (Jafari, 2013b) in current century. Climate change and climate variability and Global Warming and its’ effects on natural resources, plants, animal and in general on human life are among subjects that received attention of scientists and politicians in recent years. Climate change challenges need to be considered in various dimensions (Jafari, 2013c). To both understand the present climate and to predict future climate change, it is necessary to have both theory and empirical observation. Any study of climate change involves the construction (or reconstruction) of time series of climate data. How these climate data vary across time provides a measure (either quantitative or qualitative) of climate change. Types of climate data include temperature, precipitation (rainfall), wind, humidity, evapotranspiration, pressure and solar irradiance (aric, 2008).

Heating Degree Days (HDD), in cases where temperatures are below 18oC, and Cooling Degree Days (CDD), in cases where temperatures are above 21oC, were used as energy consumption indices. During the last half century, mean annual temperatures have increased and as a consequence, CDD in the warm season have increased sharply. In the same time slice, HDD, even in the cool and cold season have declined steadily. The number of monthly and annual total HDD (mean= 1556) are much higher than CDD (mean=400) in the case study area and annual total HDD and CDD have a negative correlation (Pearson correlation = - 0.493; p<0.001). The deceasing rate of HDD is limited and steady (R2= 0.062, p=0.099), but the increasing rate of CDD in the same time slice is sharp (R2=0.427, p=0.813). This shows that energy consumption patterns have increased sharply, and with available projection scenarios, is projected to increase more rapidly, leading to higher energy costs.

Abstract:

Importance of Global Warming and its’ effects on natural resources, plants, animal and in general on human life are among subjects that received attention of scientists and politicians in recent years. United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change as a legal document has been signed in Rio and approved by governments. To control and reduced gas emission and keep them in certain level Kyoto Protocol was agreed. I.R. Iran was among those governments signed convention in Rio and ratified later. Acceptance and ratification of Kyoto Protocol by the Government of I.R. of Iran announced officially to the secretariat. Hence, technically and politically, this issue could be considered.

Carbon dioxide and other produced gases have involved in warming up the Earth. Scientists found this warming up resulted from increase evaporation and density of water steam in atmosphere. As a result, precipitation pattern including rain or snow will change. Other fact and projection shows, warm and dry regions, will become warmer and drier. Climate change is a phenomenon that simultaneously effects with change in temperature precipitation and carbon dioxide, so, changes in all three factors should be considered in the same time.

 

Climate change issue and study of global warming attract scientists significantly. Three reports published by Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change show lack of adequate research result on climate change for the

Region and it means there are not significant published research from the Near East and Central Asia, which could be used for compellation of the reports.

 

I.R. of Iran is located in the North Temperate Zone from 25 to 40 degrees latitude and 44 to 63 degrees longitude, with a total area of approximately 1,650,000 square kilometers. A 50% of total lands area is covered with high mountain ranges. Elevations range from 26 meters below sea level on the shores of the Caspian Sea to 5860 meters above sea level at the pick of the Mt. Damavand.

 

Drought or water deficiency is one of the most critical climatic factors in Iran. About 50% of Iran can be classified as arid or semi-arid zones. Climate parameters, particularly precipitation varies significantly in different parts of the country. There is not a good annual rainfall distribution in most regions of Iran, which limits the plant development and growth. Not only high temperature in southern, central and lowlands of Iran is a limiting factor, but also low temperature in northern, western and highlands is another limiting factor too.

 

Forest ecological zones in Iran could be categorized as follow:

a) North, Caspian forest,

b) West, Zagros forest,

c) North West, Arasbaran forest,

d) South, Subtropical forest in Persian Gulf areas, and

e) Central, Scattering forests.

 

The Caspian forest possesses a closed canopy of deciduous forest, unlike the arid to semi-arid landscape throughout most of Iran. These forests belong to the broadleaf deciduous biome, which is widely distributed from North America to Europe and Asia. There are close similarities in the physionomic and taxonomic aspects between Caspian forests and European and American deciduous forests. The Caspian region receives the larger part of the country’s precipitation while the central desert (Dasht-e-Lut) is faced with permanent drought.

 

Some of the main species of Caspian forest could be listed as Fagus orientalis, Carpinus betulus, Acer velutinum, Quercus castanifolia, Fraxinus excelsior.

 

According to the studies taken by Briffa et al, (2001) on annual rings, in last 600 years, 20th century was the warmest period, with an exception of Siberia that 15th century was warmer than 20th.

Various subjects of dendrology could be study in relation to the climate change. In this research with collection of wood specimens from old tees and also ancient wooden material that have been used for different purposes and investigation on their annual rings is trying to answer to the two questions:

 

1- With considering tree annual rings as outcome of effect of climate factors, past climate condition could be estimated.

2- With using meteorological data for the period that data are available and investigation on correlation of annual ring width and climatic data, climate condition of the years which data are not available could be interpreted and explained.

 

Methodology of the project could summarize as follow:

1- Project areas are in Hyrcanian forest zone in North of Iran, in southern part of Caspian Sea, on northern slop of Albourz mountain range. Hyrcanian forest is a narrow line of temperate forest with rainfall from more than 2000 mm per year in west down to about 600 mm per year in east.

First phase of the project is for a period of three years.

2- First, working site and also tree species need to be selected. Nature of tree rings and distance to meteorological stations and availability of data are important factors for these selections. The project concentrates on dendroclimatology, to study effect of climate change on forest ecosystems.

Candidate tree species mainly could be among Beech (Fagus orientalis), Hornbeam (Carpinus betulus), Maple (Acer velutinum), Oak (Quercus castaneifolia), Alder (Alnus subcordata) or in second priority among Linden (Tilia), Walnut (Juglans), Chestnut (Castanea), Poplar (Populus), or Ash (Fraxinus excelsior).

3- Then, wood specimens by coring or discs (if harvesting is in processes) will be taken.

4- Measurements of tree rings width (crossdating by skeleton plotting)

5- Tree ring proxy

6- Dendrology analysis for chronology and climate elements correlations.

 

 

According to the results which would be provided by this research project, wood and agricultural production under different climate conditions could be estimated. Also, periodical drought and warmness may be forecasted. With this knowledge, estimations and forecasts better management and programming for sustainable management would be expected.
