Climadapt

CLIMADAPT is a web-based decision support system (DSS) based on Ecological Site Classification (ESC) developed specifically for Irish Forestry. The objective is to provide a free DSS for forest managers and policy makers, using soil and climatic information that can be used to assess species suitability and yield for individual sites under current and future climate change scenarios. The DSS also includes a spatial analysis module for regional assessment of key environmental factors influencing species suitability and productivity.
