JPI CLIMATE & JPI OCEANS have published a pre-announcement of an upcoming call for proposals for next-generation climate science which is expected to make available up to 6.6 million EUR by partner organisations from seven countries around Europe. The call is expected to open in February 2019 and proposals will be submitted till June 2019.
This Joint Call proposes to focus on oceans and climate, using observations and Earth system models in order to address the following topics:
- Strengthening our understanding of climate variability and extremes resulting from the interactions with the oceans such as extratropical and tropical cyclones, and how they are affected by climate change on a range of time scales.
- Improving the representation of air-sea interactions, physical and biogeochemical ocean processes in Earth System Models to better represent small-scale non-linear processes as well as water, energy and carbon cycles. Model-data analyses using innovative approaches will be welcome.
- Improving estimates of climate change induced modifications of ocean physics and ocean chemistry, associated with biogeochemical cycles, including ocean acidification and carbon sequestration.
