Assessing and QUantifying the ATlantic Instrumental hydroClimate

Project description

Quantifying the Atlantic instrumental hydroclimate

Throughout the years, variations in precipitation and runoff have led to major social and economic disruptions, especially in the Atlantic basin, which contains the world’s largest river systems and rainforests. The EU-funded AQUATIC project aims to extend the record of Atlantic-sector hydroclimate variability during the 1880–1950 period. The project will combine analysis of early instrumental historical climate data with state-of-the-art reanalysis and model output to shed light on the mechanisms of hydroclimate variability in and around the Atlantic and to minimise uncertainties for the future in this climatologically important region.
