Periodic Report - MEDSEA (MEDiterranean Sea Acidification in a changing climate)

Project ID: 265103
Funded under: FP7-ENVIRONMENT


This is the summary report of the MEDSEA project, funded under the European Commission (EC)'s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). MEDSEA is assessing the chemical, climatic, ecological, biological, and economical changes of the Mediterranean Sea driven by increases in carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases. The emphasis is on the combined impacts of these pressures on endemic calcifying species and related biogeochemical processes, in order to detect changes in calcification, fitness, productivity, biodiversity and food web functioning.

The report describes the project's objectives and gives in detail the work performed since the beginning of the project. The main results are discussed as well as the expected outcomes along with their potential environmental and socio economic impact.
