The Aquarius project would be hosted under the ‘PredictOnTime’ Core Project of the ‘CoastPredict’ programme and if possible, an affiliated project of DITTO.
Aquarius aims to deliver coastal predictive products for specific European and African coastal zones vulnerable to extreme natural hazards. Aquarius will provide near-real-time insights through science-based analytical capabilities from observations, modelling, and forecasting to deliver early-warning capabilities to support decision making, policy development, and capacity development.
Ultimately, this will improve coastal resilience and preparedness to protect people, nature, and infrastructure in specific coastal zones. Aquarius is cross-regional, with partners in four African countries and seven European countries. The products will be co-designed with these stakeholders (including decision-makers). Ocean literacy efforts will also be supported via a Digital Twin.
This Project is hosted by the Ocean Decade Programme CoastPredict
