European advances on CLImate services for coasts and SEAs
ECLISEA is a project that aims to advance coastal and marine climate science and associated services through developing innovative research of sea surface dynamics.
A climate dataset of sea surface variables (waves and sea level) along the coastand European seas is processed and available.
A set of documents providing information and best practices related marine and coastal climate services. An example of the topics of the on-line documents are:the available climate datasets; the stakeholder’s need; a guide of downscaling methods for regional studies on the coast; the framework to assess climate change driven shoreline changes.
A prototype of a coastal climate service is been developed. The CCS will contain(i) a smart data model infrastructure, (ii) a European coastal climate atlas, and (iii) a decision support tool for coastal impacts.
My name is Melisa Menendez (email@example.com), project coordinator). My background is in marine sciences, engineering and statistics. I have been engaged for the last 15 years on the study of marine climate and related impacts to provide new information and services to coastal engineers and managers. Understanding and characterizing the extreme met-ocean events and the consequences of climate change on the ocean and coasts are interesting issues for me.
Five leading research performing organizations on marine and coastal science compounded ECLISEA project. They are from four European countries whose coasts presents multiple climatologies and socio-economic risks.
UC-IHC; Universidad de Cantabria (Environmental Hydraulics Institute & Santander Meteorology Group). Leader of the project. Main actions are on understanding and providing information of climate variations of marine variables (historical and under climate change scenarios) and the estimation of related impacts.
BRGM; Bureau de Recherches Géologiques et Minières. BRGM role is based on impact models.
HZG, Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht (Centre for materials and coastal research). HZG main activities are focused on the collection of stakeholders needs and decadal prediction of storm surge.
CNRS; National Center for Scientific Research (Laboratoire d’etudes en geophysique et oceanographie spatiale). CNRS focuses research of historical and future behaviour of the mean sea level rise.
NCSRD; National centre for scientific research “DEMOKRITOS” (Institute of nuclear & radiological sciences & technology, energy & safety). NCSRD main activity is based on wave climate data and analysis on the Mediterranean Sea.
