The Marine Institute is delighted to support the JPI Climate & JPI Oceans Joint Transnational Call on Next Generation Climate Science in Europe for Oceans. This Joint Call focuses 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.
The funding available for Irish partners is 500,000 Euro (expected to fund two/three partners), which is being funded by the Marine Institute. The call announcement is published on the JPI Climate website. Details of the National Funding Rules for Ireland are available here. However, if you have queries please email funding [at] marine [dot] ie or the nominated national contact point listed in the call documents.
Closing Date for Proposals - 14 June 2019 at 13:00 Central European Time (12:00 noon Irish Time).
