Consequences of climate change for spatial organization of Poland

Leszek Starkel, Zbigniew W. Kundzewicz


Climate changes have been observed in Poland the recent decades and more pronounced climate changes are projected for the future. They impact on the natural and built environment of Poland, which has been shaped by both circulation of energy and matter, typical for moderate latitudes, and the properties of the landscape, inherited from the geological past. In the present paper, consequences of climate change (corresponding to model-based projections) for spatial organization of Poland have been reviewed.
