The Role of ocean dynamics and Ocean-Atmosphere
ROADMAP investigates the influence of North Atlantic and North Pacific ocean surface variability on the extratropical atmospheric circulation, with a focus on high-impact weather and climate extremes under present-day and future climate conditions.
ROADMAP conducts dedicated experiments employing cutting-edge numerical techniquesbased on data assimilation and interactive ensemble modelling. Analyses will be based on advanced dynamical and statistical methods as well as novel machine learning techniques designed to infer complex, non-linear relationships.
ROADMAP applies a multi-model approach,crucial for assessing uncertainties.
ROADMAP exploits the wealth of model simulationsrecently produced in other international (EU and worldwide) research activities.
The consortium encompasses leading climate research institutions from seven European countries, including universities as well as institutions providing (national) meteorological and climate services. ROADMAP will continue a long-standing history of successful international collaboration between its partners.

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.
