Forecasted weather development due to the climate change will have impact on the European network of transport. The present report describes the consequences of the various weather phenomena for the different traffic means road, rail, aviation, inland waterways and maritime shipping. To allow a quantitative assessment of these changes, example traffic knots and corridors for different transport modes within the various climatic regions of the European Union including their traffic volume, are described. By using other reports from the EWENT project (describing the thresholds of the various weather phenomena for the corresponding transport mode as well as the weather long term forecast), the consequences are analyzed comprehensively.
