Human-made global change will have significant impacts at regional and coastal scales on marine systems. dependent socioeconomies and ocean services. These can strongly interact with regional and local human-activity induces pressures such as fishing, pollution, and eutrophication.
The primary novelty of CE2COAST will be an observation-driven synthesis of statistical and dynamical downscaling methodology. The higher process resolution and detailed system representations are tailored address environmental pressures and services in regional and coastal domains.
The objective of the project is to deliver estimates of natural and forced variability of oceanic processes as well as regional and local mean states and trends of pressures on ocean services. A capacity to understand and predict impacts of human induced change on regional seas and coasts is essential for developing robust strategies for adaptation and mitigation.
