ATEAM's primary objective was to assess the vulnerability of human sectors relying on ecosystem services with respect to global change. We consider vulnerability to be a function of potential impacts and adaptive capacity to global change. Multiple, internally consistent scenarios of potential impacts and vulnerabilities of the sectors agriculture, forestry, carbon storage, water, nature conservation and mountain tourism in the 21st century were mapped for Europe at a regional scale for four time slices (1990, 2020, 2050, 2080).
