Introduction
I am a researcher and lecturer, passionate about climate change mitigation strategies using spatial-temporal analysis irrigation and climate modelling and GIS tools. My core research interests involve energy transition, agrivoltaics (solar power plant over agricultural land), circular agriculture and development of solar parks in a sustainable way, with an eye for landscape and spatial quality, governance, biodiversity and the integration of food production. In the research about climate chang

Assessment of viticultural potential from vineyard areas is essential for the purpose to collect the necessary data for viticultural zoning. Moreover, delineation of homogeneous zones in viticulture presents an important factor in planning and managing of vineyards targeting high yield quality. In order to define delineation, several parameters nee...

Vine is highly sensitive to climate, particularly temperature changes, which can be reflected in the quality of yield. We obtained meteorological data from weather station Llíria in viticultural region Valencia DO in Spain from the period 1961-2016 and elaborated the future model according to scenario RCP4.5 (Representative Concentration Pathways)...

Objective of this research is to describe and compare the results of climate variables analysed in two different viticulture sites; Valencia DO in Spain and Goriška Brda in Slovenia. The research includes spatial-temporal climate analysis for a period of five decades, from 1965 to 2013, in both study sites to follow weather variables measured daily...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Numerous analysis were elaborated concerning climate change in viticulture on regional scales. Nevertheless, only several analyses were made addressing the climate change on local scales. This research was conducted in local scale on study site Brda in Slovenia. It is a unique research of its kind in Slovenia. The purpose of this research is to pro...

Objective of this research is to describe and compare the results of climate variables analysed in two different viticulture sites; indeed, one study site is located in the Valencia wine region in Spain and the other is in the Goriška Brda region in Slovenia. The research includes the climate analysis for a period of five decades in both study site...

Project
Assessment of viticultural potential from vineyard areas is essential for the purpose to collect the necessary data for viticultural zoning. Using this data, we can achieve greater yield quality. Fourteen environmental factors, which represent relief, climate and soil, were used to determinate homogeneous viticultural zones within Goriška Brda wine growing region (Slovenia). Each homogeneous viticultural zone was described in terms of its viticultural potential, which expresses the types of wine that can be produced according to its climatic, topographical and pedological suitabilities. Inside of the study area, three homogeneous viticultural zones with different viticultural potential were defined: a zone suitable for quality white wines and red table wines (25.98% of the area); a zone suitable for quality white wines (50.03%); a zone suitable for sparkling wines, white table wines and wines for distillates (23.76%). These zones make up the viticulture potential map of Goriška Brda viticultural region. This research provides a spatial analysis of the ecological structure with suitability of ecological factors for different wine types. The study identifies and delineates the homogeneous viticultural zones in the area by using a new methodological approach and reveal how diverse the viticultural potential can be when analysed at fine scale.
Project
The purpose is to provide spatial-temporal assessment of climate change during the last five decades and future scenarios, along with its impact on viticulture in two viticultural regions: Valencia DO in Spain and Goriška Brda in Slovenia. Spatial-temporal study is conducted by using bioclimatic indices Huglin, Winkler and Dryness index, suggesting the most conducive grape varieties in terms of production and quality according to the local climate conditions. the study includes the assessment of future water requirements for Tempranillo, Bobal and Moscatel grape variety by using evapotranspiration method by Blaney-Criddle.
