Prototype of a European Coastal Climate Service
This work-package aims to convey the coastal climate information collected, developed and integrated at a pan-European scale from a standardized scientific format to a user-friendly prototype. The objective of the prototype is to represent a common framework of a coastal climate service focusing on stakeholder demands localized. The tools to be developed in this WP are (i) a smart data model infrastructure, (ii) a European coastal climate atlas, and (iii) a decision support tool.
The Web-portal will be a web service with open access where the user can easily get coastal climate data for a specific coastal or offshore location in Europe. ECLISEA proposes a collaborative approach for the development of a common European core data service providing free access to coastal climate information. To achieve this goal and make the application reasonably fast we will use cloud technology with access to several servers of different institutions and parallel processing.
The activities to develop the web-portal are grouped in three tasks:
5.1. The infrastructure in support to coastal climate services
5.2. A European coastal climate web atlas
5.3. The Coastal Climate Simulator
