Data from Corine Land Cover (CLC) for years 1990 and 2000, hence with same geographical coverage and forest definition as CLC; mathematical morphology based software GUIDOS (Soille and Vogt, 2009) and GIS analysis; results aggregated at provincial units (NUTS level 2/3).
Results aggregated at provincial units, NUTS level 2 or 3.
Ranges for levels of increase are: very high for above 100 % increase with respect to the total number of core forest patches in 1990; high for the range 50–100%; medium for the range 25–50 %; low for the range 5–25%; and very low for below 5%.

The data derive from Corine land cover (CLC) for the years 1990 and 2000 and, hence, have the same geographical coverage and forest definition as CLC; core forest from mathematical morphology-based software GUIDOS from Soille and Vogt, 2009, and GIS analysis. Results aggregated at provincial units, NUTS level 2 or 3. Ranges for levels of increase are: very high for above 100 % increase with respect to the total number of vore forest patches in 1990; high for 50-100 %; medium for 25-50 %; lov for 5-25 %; and very low for below 5 %.

Some 97.5% of water on the Earth is salt water, leaving only 2.5% as fresh water. Of this over two thirds is frozen in glaciers and polar ice caps. The remaining unfrozen fresh water is found mainly as groundwater, with only a small fraction present in rivers, lakes or in the air. Water is a precious resource, use it responsibly and don’t waste it!
