Recent hydrological extreme events demonstrate the vulnerability of European society to water-related natural hazards, and there is strong evidence that climate change will worsen these events in the coming years. Future hydrological extremes may be very different from today’s reality and difficult to predict. Changed water-related extremes will have important implications on the water sector and the design of water management practices. Hence, there is...

As natural catastrophes, such as floods, heatwaves or wildfires, are expected to become more frequent and intense in the future, mitigating their impacts through working partnerships and the dissemination of risk information is vital. This is the message highlighted by an EU-funded research project ENHANCE in a newly published book ‘Novel Multi-Sector Partnerships in Disaster Risk Management – Results of the ENHANCE project’. The book...

Experts from the World Food Programme have worked in collaboration with Met Office climate scientists to devise a measurement of food vulnerability to climate change. The Food Insecurity and Climate Change index is a measure of how vulnerable to disruption a country’s food security system is as a result of flood and drought events. The results of this research have been incorporated into an interactive...

The objective of the CCI programme is to realize the full potential of the long-term global Earth Observations archives that ESA together with its Member States have established over the last 30 years, as a significant and timely contribution to the ECV databases required by the UNFCCC. The CCI comprises fourteen parallel projects geared to ECV data production, plus a dedicated climate modelling user project...

The North Atlantic Ocean is one of the most important drivers for the global ocean circulation and its variability on time scales beyond inter-annual. Global climate variability is to a large extent triggered by changes in the North Atlantic sea surface state. The quality and skill of climate predictions depends crucially on a good knowledge of the northern sea surface temperatures (SST) and sea ice distributions. On...

Aim of the User Data Gateway (UDG) is to facilitate seasonal forecasting data access to end users. A wiki page provides an up-to-date description of the ECOMS-UDG, including information on the available datasets and variables, and the documentation of the available tools. The User Data Gateway is build as part of the project European Climate Observations, Modelling and Services initiative (ECOMS). ECOMS was promoted by...
