Lead institution:

Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI) – Denmark

Klimaatlas is a well-established tool designed to support climate adaptation of municipalities in Denmark. Klimaatlas conveys climate information about future changes and extremes in temperature, precipitation, wind, evaporation, sea level and storm surges in Denmark in a user-friendly format and serves as one of the primary sources of climate information on land in Denmark.

This project will extend Klimaatlas into the marine domain by adding projections of marine indicators around Denmark. The project will identify the information needs of marine stakeholders in Denmark and use this understanding to produce indicators tailored to meet these needs, including ocean temperature, frequency of marine heatwaves, ocean salinity, and sea ice cover. The project will thereby increase the data and knowledge base regarding climate change in coastal waters surrounding Denmark and support climate adaptation and ecosystem-based management in this region.
