MedCORDEX-Baltic Earth-COST Workshop on Regional Climate System Modelling for the European Sea Regions
Universitat de les Illes Balears, Palma de Mallorca, Spain
14- 16 March 2018
The aim of this workshop is to share recent progress in the understanding of regional climate variability with special focus on coupled effects between sea, atmosphere, land and anthroposphere. In this workshop, we will focus on European seas and their catchment areas like the Mediterranean Sea, Black Sea, North Sea, Baltic Sea and Arctic Ocean – highly sensitive areas where global models fail to give reliable information about changing climate because key processes are not properly resolved.
Coupled atmosphere–sea ice–ocean models have been developed further in the recent past by using a hierarchy of sub-models for the Earth system. In these Earth system models, regional climate models are combined with sub-models for surface waves, land surface and vegetation, hydrology, land and marine biogeochemistry, the marine carbon cycle as well as marine biology and food webs. These model systems aim to investigate the impact of climate change on the entire terrestrial and marine environment.
The workshop takes place at the Universitat de les Illes Balears in Palma de Mallorca, the capital of the Balearic islands. With about 500.000 inhabitants, Palma is a bustling mediterranean city with a picturesque historic centre. It looks back on a rich history with various culturalinfl uences, with roman, byzanti ne and islamic periods. Palma is situated on the south coast of Mallorca on the Bay of Palma, and the beauti ful mountain range of the Serra de Tramuntana stretches to the north.
