Regional Atlantic Circulation and Global Change

Regional Atlantic Circulation and Global Change
General information
The joint initiative RACE investigates the regional Atlantic circulation and global change. Changes of the future Atlantic circulation over the next 10 to 100 years are one of the foci. Results will help to quantify repercussions on the global ocean, the climate system and the European shelf area, including humans. Investigations include an improved process understanding which will enhance knowledge about the adaptation possibilites of a future ocean circulation. Hence, simulating regional processes may be improved.
