CE2COAST is now a partner in the Global Ocean Oxygen Decade (GOOD) under the Global Ocean Oxygen Network (GO2NE)
Oxygen in the ocean supports the largest ecosystems on the planet. However, the ocean is at risk, it is losing oxygen, termed ocean deoxygenation, at a rapid rate. The decrease of ocean oxygen is primarily due to global warming by greenhouse gas emissions, and pollution by nutrients and organic wastes particularly in coastal waters. The Decade Programme will raise global awareness about ocean deoxygenation, provide knowledge for action and develop mitigation and adaptation measures through local, regional and global efforts, including intensified monitoring, transdisciplinary research, bi-directional knowledge transfer among stakeholders and scientists, innovative outreach and ocean education and literacy. The high-level objective of the Decade Programme is to provide data and knowledge to enable society, stakeholders, and scientists to co-design and develop measures that can mitigate the drivers and impacts of ocean deoxygenation and provide appropriate adaptation measures where mitigation is not possible. Developing mitigation of and/or adaptation approaches to deoxygenation are of paramount importance for ensuring the provision of ecosystem services, addressing threats to the climate system and minimizing the impact of ocean deoxygenation on the ocean economy.
2-year postdoctoral fellowship position available
A 2-year postdoctoral fellowship position (with a possibility for extension) is available in the research topic of multi-ESMs process-based assessment and benchmark for regional downscaling at the biogeochemistry group of NORCE Climate and the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research. The Bjerknes Centre is the largest climate research centre in the Scandinavian countries and among the leading centres in Europe.
We are seeking an enthusiastic and highly motivated climate scientist to work in the newly funded project CE2COAST (Downscaling Climate and Ocean Change to Services). The project, involves international and interdisciplinary researchers, aims to deliver observation-driven synthesis of statistical and dynamical downscaling methodology to provide improved process resolution and system representations tailored to regional/coastal domains and their associated pressures/services.
Closing date is 31st of January 2021.
New booklet: Next Generation Climate for Oceans – Research projects 2020-2023
CE2COAST included in the information booklet produced from the JPI Oceans and JPI Climate joint kick-off meeting “Next Generation Climate for Oceans – Research projects 2020-2023”. The booklet provides a brief overview of the scope and objectives of each project focusing on interactions between oceans and climate by analysing model simulations and observational data, as well as details on the respective partner consortia.
