Aquaporin-Inside™ Membranes for Brackish water Reverse Osmosis Application

Water is a precondition for human, animal and plant life – but climate change poses a threat to the world’s water supply, with many regions at risk of severe drought. An EU-funded project has developed a membrane inspired by nature’s own technology to sustainably secure safe and clean water for all

Climatic Suitability for the Tiger Mosquito - Season Length, 1971-2099

Context The tiger mosquito (Aedes albopictus) transmits vector-borne diseases, such as dengue and chikungunya. Environmental factors such as temperature and rainfall impact the survival chance and seasonal activity of the tiger mosquito which is a serious threat for human health in Europe

Fire Weather Index - Monthly Mean, 1979-2019

Context The Canadian Fire Weather Index System (FWI) is used to assess fire danger in a harmonized way across Europe. The FWI uses information about fuel moisture and weather conditions to determine fire behaviour

Thermal Comfort Indices - Mean Radiant Temperature, 1979-2019

Context The mean radiant temperature (MRT) is a human biometeorology parameter that is used to assess the linkages between the outdoor environment and human well‐being. Thermal comfort indices describe how the human body experiences atmospheric conditions, specifically air temperature, humidity, wind and radiation

Health Heatwave (High Temperature and Humidity), 1971-2099

Context A health-related heatwave is a prolonged period of extremely high temperature and humidity for a particular region during which daily minima and maxima both exceed thresholds. Heatwaves with high humidity are problematic for human health and well-being

Thermal Comfort Indices - Universal Thermal Climate Index, 1979-2019

Context The universal thermal climate index (UTCI) is a human biometeorology parameter that is used to assess the linkages between outdoor environment and human well‐being. Thermal comfort indices describe how the human body experiences atmospheric conditions, specifically air temperature, humidity, wind and radiation

OPEn-air laboRAtories for Nature baseD solUtions to Manage environmental risks

The objective of OPERANDUM is to reduce hydro-meteorological risks in European territories through co-designed, co-developed, deployed, tested and demonstrated innovative green and blue/grey/hybrid NBS, and push business exploitation. It aims for provision of science-evidence for the usability of NBS, and best practices for their design based on participatory processes

Biodiversity Integrated Assessment and Computation Tool (B-INTACT)

Biodiversity loss is accelerating at an unprecedented rate across the planet putting a great number of species on the brink of extinction. A decline in the plants, animals and micro-organisms threatens food security, sustainable development and the supply of vital ecosystem services

Daily Maximum Temperature - Monthly Mean, 2011-2099

Context The daily maximum temperature index provides information on long-term climate variability and change. Temperature plays a fundamental role in agricultural productivity, biodiversity and public health

Precipitation Sum, 2011-2099

Context The precipitation sum provides information on possible water shortage or excess. Definition The precipitation sum index is expressed as a percentage change in total precpitation relative to a reference period

Daily Mean Temperature - Monthly Mean, 2011-2099

Context The daily mean temperature index provides information on long-term climate variability and change. Temperature plays a fundamental role in agricultural productivity, biodiversity and public health

Daily Minimum Temperature - Monthly Mean, 2011-2099

Context The daily minimum temperature index provides information on long-term climate variability and change. Temperature plays a fundamental role in agricultural productivity, biodiversity and public health

Biologically Effective Degree Days, 2011-2099

Context The biologically effective degree days index provides information about the growing season. Definition The biologically effective degree days (°C) index is the sum of daily mean temperatures above 10°C and less than 30°C for a given period

Mean Sea Level, 2070-2100

Context The mean sea level index informs an understanding of European coastal hydrodynamics under the impact of climate change. It provides added value for various coastal sectors and studies such as port, shipping, and coastal management with particular relvance to coastal management

Days with a High Amount of Natural Snow, 2011-2099

Context Snow indices for Europe can be used to characterize the operating conditions of winter ski resorts under future climate scenarios. They are used in the assessment of snow reliability for mountainous regions across Europe

Total Winter Snow, 2011-2099

Context Snow indices for Europe can be used to characterize the operating conditions of winter ski resorts under future climate scenarios. They are used in the assessment of snow reliability for mountainous regions across Europe

Frost Days, 2011-2099

Context The number of frost days provides information on frost damage. Definition A frost day is when the daily minimum temperature is less than 0°C

Climatological Heatwave (High Temperature), 1971-2099

Context A climatological heatwave is a prolonged period of extremely high temperature for a particular region that exceeds a maximum threshold. Heatwaves have consequences for health, agriculture, power, wildfire and infrastructure
