Final Report - FIELD_AC (Fluxes, interactions and environment at the land-ocean boundary. downscaling, assimilation and coupling)

Project ID: 242284
Funded under: FP7-SPACE


This is the final report for the FIELD_AC project which received funding under the European Commission's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). FIELD_AC's main objective was to provide higher accuracy and reliability of meteo-oceanographic predictions that encompass a wide range of physical and ecological variables with the ultimate aim of predicting the water quality status near coastal cities, tourist beaches or rich aquaculture and fishery areas. This would be achieved by the introduction of more comprehensive land discharge conditions, improved local parameterisations and new strategies for the studied field cases. Four case studies that cover northern Europe (Liverpol Bay and German Bight) and southern Europe (Catalan coast and Venice gulf) were selected.

The report focuses initially in its summary on the project context and then presents the activities undertaken and the dissemination results in detail. In the next section it elaborates on the main research outcomes while in the last part it thoroughly presents the potential impact of the results and the main dissemination activities.
