Cross-border network of instruments and experts for the determination and management of water, carbon and energy fluxes and stocks in agricultural and grassland ecosystems of the Pyrenees, in a context of climate and land-use changes

FLUXPYR is a network of infrastructures and multidisciplinary experts from France, Spain and Andorra who contribute to the evaluation and management of the impacts of climate and landuse changes on Pyrenean ecosystems and their inhabitants.

The Project promotes the installation of micrometeorological and hydrological stations (up to

2000 m asl), the launch of aircrafts equipped to take air samples and aerial photos, the analysis

and interpretation of satellite images, etc.

FLUXPYR allows the production of models and maps of soil cover, soil carbon and water contents, snow cover dynamics, etc., and its outcomes help to inform climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies.

Moreover, FLUXPYR fosters the exchange of knowledge and experience and the training of

staff, and creates awareness amongst the society about the causes and consequences of climate change and ways to face it.
