North Sea Region Climate Change Assessment

  title={North Sea Region Climate Change Assessment},
  author={Markus Quante and Franciscus Colijn},
  journal={North Sea Region Climate Change Assessment},
This book offers an up-to-date review of our current understanding of climate change in the North Sea and adjacent areas, as well as its impact on ecosystems and socio-economic sectors. It provides a detailed assessment of climate change based on published scientific work compiled by independent international experts from climate-related disciplines such as oceanography, atmospheric sciences, marine and terrestrial ecology, using a regional evaluation and review process similar to that of the… Expand

Urban water management and climate change adaptation: A self-assessment study by seven midsize cities in the North Sea Region
Abstract Cities are experiencing the impacts of climate change through water-related disasters, while the sustainable management of water resources remains crucial for urban climate resilience.Expand
Oceanographic regional climate projections for the Baltic Sea until 2100
Abstract. Recently performed scenario simulations for the Baltic Sea including marine biogeochemistry were analyzed and compared with earlier published projections. The Baltic Sea, located inExpand
Accelerating Climate Service Development for Renewable Energy, Finance and Cities
Wider applications of climate services within the management of climate risks face significant challenges. This paper presents a forecasting approach, to assess the development trends in climateExpand
Climate‐Driven Change in the North Atlantic and Arctic Oceans Can Greatly Reduce the Circulation of the North Sea
We demonstrate for the first time a direct oceanic link between climate‐driven change in the North Atlantic and Arctic oceans and the circulation of the northwest European shelf‐seas. DownscaledExpand
Comparative Effects of Climate Change and Tidal Stream Energy Extraction in a Shelf Sea
The environmental implications of tidal stream energy extraction need to be evaluated against the potential climate change impacts on the marine environment. Here we study how hypothetical very largeExpand
Summary of a workshop on extreme weather events in a warming world organized by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences
Abstract Climate change is not only about changes in means of climatic variables such as temperature, precipitation and wind, but also their extreme values which are of critical importance to humanExpand
Impact of accelerated future global mean sea level rise on hypoxia in the Baltic Sea
Abstract Expanding hypoxia is today a major threat for many coastal seas around the world and disentangling its drivers is a large challenge for interdisciplinary research. Using a coupledExpand
Summer hydrographic changes in the Baltic Sea, Kattegat and Skagerrak projected in an ensemble of climate scenarios downscaled with a coupled regional ocean–sea ice–atmosphere model
This model study investigates summer hydrographic changes in response to climate projections following the CMIP5 RCP8.5 scenario. We use the high resolution regional coupled ocean–sea ice–atmosphereExpand
Simulating major storm surge events in a complex coastal region
Abstract Climate change and increased coastal urbanization are causing low-lying coastlines to become increasingly susceptible to the threat of extreme water levels and coastal flooding. RobustExpand
Which complexity of regional climate system models is essential for downscaling anthropogenic climate change in the Northwest European Shelf?
Climate change impact studies for the Northwest European Shelf (NWES) make use of various dynamical downscaling strategies in the experimental setup of regional ocean circulation models. ProjectedExpand
