Project: Evaluation of climate change impacts and adaptation responses for marine activities

project duration
15-DEC-06 – 31-JAN-09
abstract
Research and modeling to differentiate the primary impacts of climate change from the natural evolution at the North Sea scale. Then secondary impacts of climate change both on the ecological system of the North Sea as well as on social-economic activities will be assessed. Two extensive case-studies (coastal flooding, fisheries sector) have high extrapolation potential towards the global North Sea environment. Adaptive measures will be formulated both for the ecosystem as well as for the other marine activiteiten.
