Investigating The Effect of ClimateChange On The FutureTourism of Lorestan Province using The TCI index And RCP Scenarios

Journal Title: Human Ecology - Year 2022, Vol 1, Issue 1

Abstract

It is said that climate change will have a negative impact on the tourism industry, since climate is one of the fundamental variables of tourism. In order to investigate the impact of climate change on the future situation (2020-2050) of tourism climate in Lorestan province, two scenarios of radiation forcing RCP2.6 and RCP8.5 and tourism climate index TCI were used in this study. For this purpose, the data of the two scenarios were obtained from ESGF portal. After the exponential scaling of the data using the LARS -WG6 microrotation model, their reliability compared to the ground stations was checked monthly in the base period, then to check the future tourism climate, the monthly average of the parameters was calculated and called to the TCI index. The non-parametric Mann-Kendall test was used to examine the changes in the climatic parameters used in the TCI index. The results showed that qualitative changes of TCI index occur in the next period in Borujerd and Khorramabad stations in 7 months and in Borujerd station in 8 months of the year compared to the base period. In the next period, under both scenarios, we will generally see a decrease in the quality of tourism climate in Aligoders station, a qualitative increase in Borujerd station and the contrast of TCI decrease and improvement in both scenarios in Borujerd station. In the parameters of temperature, sunshine hours and wind speed, there is a positive increase in both scenarios, but it is not significant. In the parameters of precipitation and humidity, a decrease in precipitation in winter is often observed, which from this point of view is considered a positive factor for the tourism climate of the stations, while an increase in precipitation and humidity in summer, especially in RCP2/6, is considered a negative factor for the future tourism climate of the stations. Considering the increase in temperature and sunshine hours in the coming period and the abundance of water resources in the province, investment in water recreation infrastructure and the use of water-related tourism activities will not only utilize the capacity of travelers from neighboring provinces such as Khuzestan in hot seasons, but can also be combined with temperature increases. and sunshine hours to increase the attractiveness of travel and use in this part of tourism activities.
