“SeeWandel-Climate: Modelling the consequences of climate change and neobiota for Lake Constance” aims to provide updated predictions of the consequences of climate change – including the effects of invasive species – on the Lake Constance ecosystem and its sustainable use. To this end, practice-oriented models are being developed for authorities, organisations (IGKB, IBKF) and the public. The results will be made available to various target groups.


The project work in SeeWandel-Climate is organised in 9 sub-projects. Modelling work is central, with the aim of being able to predict complex consequences of factors such as climate change and invasive species as well as their interaction for the Lake Constance ecosystem and its use. The necessary provision of robust parameters and findings for the development of such predictive model systems is carried out by various teams of researchers.
