Downscaling Climate and Ocean Change to Services: Thresholds and Opportunities
Global change will have significant impacts at regional and coastal scales on marine systems, dependent socioeconomic systems, ocean services and can strongly interact with regional pressures. CE2COAST delivers transnational added value through strategically combining national expertise across oceanography, marine biogeochemistry and ecology, data and database management, earth system, marine and ecosystem modelling and science policy communication.
We will deliver Earth System Model simulations from the CMIP archivethat will be downscaled for hindcasting and projecting physical and biogeochemical fields in the regional and coastal ocean providing past/future states and climate change signals.
The primary novelty of will be an observation-driven synthesis of downscaling methodologyto provide better process resolution and system representations that are tailored to regional/coastal domains and their associated pressures/services.
It will compile and analyze new targeted, fit-for-purpose marine observations datasetsfrom existing and new project observations of ocean climate, biogeochemistry and relevant ecological indicators. We will deliver Earth System Model simulations from the CMIP archive that will be downscaled for hindcasting and projecting physical and biogeochemical fields in the regional and coastal ocean providing past/future states and climate change signals.
To inform adaptation policy to ocean and coastal change,we will deliver key new knowledge to end-users through dissemination activities.

JPI Climate & JPI Oceans Joint Transnational Call on the Next Generation Climate Science in Europe for Oceans
Oceans play a key role in the climate system and are also affected by climate change. As confirmed by the IPCC special report on ocean and cryosphere, ocean dynamics are a major modulator of weather and climate including future trends and extremes. However, there are still uncertainties in the understanding and quantification of key climate-ocean interactions and the ocean’s buffering capacities for absorbing heat and CO2. This joint call aims to address these uncertainties.
