EMODnet & CMEMS together to build a framework for improving land boundary conditions in CMEMS regional products

The EMODnet River data service provided by EMODnet Physics will support the LAMBDA (LAnd-Marine Boundary Development and Analysis) project to demonstrate the quality of modelling results produced by the watershed models. The EMODnet river service will enhance the Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service (CMEMS) by aiding in watershed models validation and quality control thus improving their forecast services.

Exploiting citizen science for collecting data on marine biodiversity

Wildsea Europe Route offers tourists access to routes connecting European coastal destinations that allow them to learn about marine wildlife and participate actively in conservation efforts; including the collection and propagation of marine biodiversity data. “Citizen science” activities such as these are increasingly being recognised as an important source of information with the potential to contribute to our knowledge of the sea and increase participants’ sense of responsibility and ownership of the marine environment.


Improving storm surge modelling in the North Sea

Changes in coastal sea level caused by the combined effect of surface winds and air pressure have the potential to cause widespread coastal flooding, damage to infrastructure and loss of life.

The low-lying lands bordering the North Sea are particularly vulnerable as was seen most notably in the catastrophic events of 1953. It is expected that climate change will increase the frequency and severity of such events.
