DRYvER focal DRNs located in highly contrasted EU and CELAC biogeographic and climatic settings (red points), chosen to span the expected natural variability of drying processes and associated DRN responses.

  1. Mediterranean ecoregion: the Genal network, in Andalucía (Spain, Mediterranean climate), a dry region heavily impacted by climate change, where most rivers are already affected by drying (contact partner: UB);
  2. Alpine ecoregion: the Albarine network, in the Southern Jura (France, temperate climate), a region mildly impacted by climate change (the Albarine network is part of a national LTER project and monitored since 2006) (contact partner: INRAE);
  3. Continental ecoregion: the Velička network, in Morava (Czech Republic, continental climate), a region heavily impacted by climate change where many perennial rivers are shifting towards intermittent flow (contact partner: MU);
  4. Balkanic ecoregion: the Krka network, in the Dinaric Karst (Croatia, Mediterranean climate), a region where most rivers are already drying and heavily impacted by climate change (contact partner: UZ);
  5. Pannonian ecoregion: the Bükkösdi-víz network, in the Mecsek (Hungary, continental climate), a region moderately impacted by climate change, where DRNs are becoming common (contact partner: UP);
  6. Boreal ecoregion: the Vantaanjoki network, Helsinki-Uusimaa Region (Finland, boreal climate), region moderately impacted by climate change, where flow intermittence is currently rare (contact partner: SYKE);
  7. Pacific Lowlands: the Cube network, in the Andean-Choco region (Ecuador, tropical climate), a region where drying is very seasonal and increasing in duration and frequency (contact partner: USFQ);
  8. Central High Andes ecoregion: the Rio Chico network in the Sucre region (Bolivia, semi-arid climate), a dry area prone to desertification where political conflicts emerge due to water scarcity (contact partner: USFX);
  9. Caatinga ecoregion: the Jaguaribe network, in the Northeast Semiarid region (Brazil, semi-arid climate), the driest region in Brazil, already heavily impacted by climate change (contact partner: UFC).
