Projected annual rate of change of the crop water deficit of grain maize during the growing season in Europe for the period 2015-2045 for two climate scenarios.
The resulting simulations are provided in geotiff file (trend values) and shapefile. The shapefile contains the information on the regions where the crop water requirement during the reference period (1985-2014) frequently (i.e. in more than 90 % of years) exceeds the total growing season rainfall cumulates. The scientific publication presenting these results is in preparation.
* 1985-2014 (for areas where currently the crop water demand frequently exceeds the rainfall cumulates, i.e. the hatches).
* 2015-2045 (the scenario period considered for estimation of future trends in crop water deficit).
