CoastPredict is transforming the science of observing and predicting the Global Coastal Ocean, from river catchments, including urban scales, to the oceanic slope waters.

It integrates observations with numerical models to produce predictions with uncertainties from extreme events to climate, for the coastal marine ecosystems (their services), biodiversity, co-designing transformative response to science and societal needs. CoastPredict redefines the concept of the ‘Global Coastal Ocean’, focusing on the many common worldwide features, to produce observations and predictions of natural variability and human-induced changes in the coastal areas and upgrades the infrastructure for data exchange in line with recognised standards.
