Climate risk in Oppdal

Greenhouse gas emissions per capita:
9.7 tonnes of CO2-eq
Largest source of emissions:
Agriculture
Projects with green funding from KBN:
4 projects
Emissions avoided and reduced from projects:
2 tonnes CO2-eq
Climate change may increase the probability of:
Heavy rainfall
Heavy rainfall events are expected to increase in intensity and frequency. This will lead to more stormwater runoff.
Rainfall floods (pluvial floods)
More frequent floods, and larger flood magnitudes are expected. In particular small rivers and brooks will be exposed.
Earth slides, floodslides and slushflows
Increased risk due to increases in heavy rainfall
Storm surges
As a consequence of sea level rise, the levels of storm surges are expected to increase

The chart shows emissions within the municipality's geographical area. It is based on the same principles and sectorial classifications as the national accounts, which again are based on the IPCC standard.

Predictions for future climate in Oppdal

Increased probability
Heavy rainfall
Heavy rainfall events are expected to increase in intensity and frequency. This will lead to more stormwater runoff.
Rainfall floods (pluvial floods)
More frequent floods, and larger flood magnitudes are expected. In particular small rivers and brooks will be exposed.
Earth slides, floodslides and slushflows
Increased risk due to increases in heavy rainfall
Storm surges
As a consequence of sea level rise, the levels of storm surges are expected to increase
Possible increased probability
Droughts
Higher temperatures and increased evaporation increases the risk of summer droughts.
Ice-run
A shorter frost season, more frequent ice-runs in winter and ice-runs at higher elevations than today
Snow avalanches
Snow avalanches and slushflows are expected to become more frequent, however, towards the end of this century, the probability of dry snow avalanches will decrease where the snow season gets shorter and the snow amounts decrease
Quick-clay slides
Increased erosion as a consequence of more flooding may trigger more quick-clay slides.
Uncertain
Strong wind
Possibly no change
Rockfall
More frequent heavy rainfall may increase the frequency of rockfall, however, mainly for small events.
Rockslide
A substantial increase in the risk of rockslides is not expected due to climate change.
No change or less probability
Snowmelt floods (nival floods)
The onset of snowmelt floods are expected to shift earlier in spring and decrease in magnitude towards the end of this century

This climate profile summarizes the concrete effects that climate change may have on Oppdal towards year 2100. The profile is based on a scenario where global greenhouse gas emissions continue to develop at the same rate as they have in recent decades (in the reports of the IPCC this scenario is known as RCP 8.5). The climate profile has been prepared by the Norwegian Centre for Climate Services (NCCS).

Climate risk for industries essential to Oppdal

We have listed the industries that employ the most people in the municipality and that we believe may be affected by climate risk. The questions in the table are intended as a starting point for dialogue with the local business community. We have tried to indicate the degree of severity at an overall level but recommend that you make a separate assessment based on the local context.

The sample is based on Statistics Norway's statistics on employment by place of residence (table 08536). You can learn more about how we have selected the industries in the methodology note.
