Development of new and enhancement of existing, innovative climate services.
Economic assessment of flood risk (Cost-ADAPT) based on the projected seasonal and decadal rainfalls and estimated flood volumes using the general equilibrium model (ICES)
The Water Resource Management Model (WRMM) will estimate the daily average stream flow by using the DEWSPo modelling framework. The service will capture the groundwater surface and water interactions and is meant for authorities and entities engaged in managing ecological river flows, water abstraction entitlements, and drought related emergency measures.
The Water requirements for irrigation (WRI) will extend and further develop Arpae’s operative agro-climatic services for the irrigators that is based on the iColt service. Spatial outputs from agro-climatic models can be download for GIS application or accessed via webGiS interfaces.
The Soil Water Budget usable Predictor (SWBP) will be a web mapping application providing high-resolution, spatially distributed agro-meteorological indices such as water budget variables (hydro-climatic balance BIC, Soil Water Content SWC, evapotranspiration, etc).
The Water Supply Forecasts and Projections (WSFP) will provide urban water supply companies with seasonal forecasts and climate projections of groundwater levels, river flow, lake levels and water temperature and will help these companies in managing their resource.
The Multi-objective Reservoir Operation Assessment Tool (ROAT) will provide operational assessment of multi-objective reservoirs (flood control, urban-agriculture-industry water supply, hydropower) based on seasonal and longer-term river-flow forecasts and the environmental flow regime requirements
The Small Hydropower Atlas (SHPA) supports hydropower suitability and production assessment. Using newly available C3S data, it will be enhanced to include seasonal forecasts of hydroelectricity production.
Small HydroPower Assessment Tool (SHYMAT) provides river flow predictions in snow dominated areas, considering the environmental flow requirements that limit the water use for hydroelectricity production.
AirvCloud will be built upon existing services offering urban climate information of 1x1 km2 spatial resolution and a temporal resolution of one hour. CLARA extends this information with an in-cloud air quality modelling tool for high resolution assessments on the local and micro-scale/street level.
CTR - QA will evaluate the feasibility of a new improved air quality scenario analysis service at regional/local spatial scale simulating the air quality in future climate scenarios by running existing numerical models using meteorological input data coming from climate models and boundary conditions.
Posts processed decadal projections (PPDP) will be built on the existing post-processing methodologies and data products based on climate projections. The CLARA project will allow to extend this service to decadal projections.
CLIME tailored tool to analyse for observed and simulated climate data building upon award winning tool making it possible to analyse ensembles of multi-model climate simulations.
Twh Prediction service predict potential hydro-energy availability in Twh for all time-scales and will be developed for Scandinavia together with energy trading companies.
The Solar Energy Assessment and Planning Tool (SEAP) will provide both spatial and operational assessment of solar energy systems (SES) based on the prediction of climate variables on different time scales.
