Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This research utilizes a gridded climate data set (WorldClim) at 1 km resolution to examine the spatial structure of six commonly used climate-viticulture suitability indices in winegrowing regions. This paper focuses on a subset of 16 European regions to determine the usefulness of the approach and compares the results to other western United States and Australian regions. Future work will further develop and summarize the climate grids for winegrowing regions worldwide making available globally comparable climate information.
