Development of new and enhancement of existing, innovative climate services.
PWA 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.
AirCloud 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.
The climate change may strongly affect air quality standards in the Po river Valley in the North of Italy. The evaluation of the impact of climate on air quality is still under investigation and AQCLI service aims at addressing this specific issue. The AQCLI service will provide an assessment of how climate change will affect the air quality, especially for PM10 and O3. The assessment will be representative of urban background concentration. It will represent both present conditions and a future scenario.
