Climate Resilience

ADAPTER (ADAPT TERrestrial systems) is an applied knowledge transfer project started in spring 2019 by the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centers (HGF). ADAPTER's goals are to develop and provide innovative simulation-based products for weather and climate-resilient agriculture. In the map on this page, three selected measured variables can be shown as examples: evapotranspiration, terrestrial temperature and wind speed. The data was retained on November 17, 2019 at 12:00 PM. For the future, it is planned to make up-to-date data available with additional parameters.

In a cooperation between the Climate Service Center Germany (GERICS) at the Helmholtz Center Geesthacht and the Institute for Bio- and Geosciences (IBG-3, Agrosphere) on Forschungszentrum Jülich (FZJ), on the one hand, products based on simulation calculations and forecasts with the Terrestrial Systems Modeling Platform (TSMP) (IBG-3) and on the other hand, prototypical" climate products "are generated (GERICS). The knowledge transfer takes place via a so-called practice network and a "digital product platform". In terms of a user-oriented science that makes applicable information available for those involved in practice, the specific information needs of various key partners from agriculture define the specific project goals and the design of the products. The forecasts are optimized by a network of soil moisture sensors that will be implemented as a Citizen Science approach with the help of the forecast users. Concrete questions in the areas of optimized soil management and climate adaptation measures have already emerged from expert discussions and surveys. In addition to existing information offers, ADAPTER would like to make information available that can be integrated into the specific agricultural business plan.
