coordinates the project. In WP1, ensuring the on–time activities completion, and the development and maintenance of the project website. In WP2, it contributes to the investigation of the sources of predictability for the Mediterranean area, performing the project coordinated sensitivity experiments, targeted at exploring the land surface-atmosphere feedbacks and the teleconnection mechanisms In WP3, it contributes to the statistical downscaling activities. It is also involved in WP4, formulating and applying indicators related to the agriculture and forestry sector at regional and local scales.
is project co-coordinator. In WP2, it leads the activity aimed aimed at investigating teleconnection with low latitudes and it takes part in the coordinated sensitivity experiments, process analyses and building on empirical forecasts. BSC also leads WP3 on calibration, verification and information synthesis, coordinating the building and release of MEDSCOPE toolbox. BSC participates in WP4 on climate services and leads the task on wind energy.
ISAC – CNR co–leads WP2. It leads the task on teleconnection with mid–latitudes and investigates teleconnections with low–latitudes, contributing to set up and analyses of the coordinated sensitivity experiments. In WP3, it contributes to the tasks on calibration, verification and information synthesis, leading the activities of a task on advanced multivariable forecast scores and stochastic downscaling methods. ISAC participates in WP4, where it contributes to the development of hydrological products.
IRPI-CNR participates in WP4, where it contributes to Task 4.2 (Hydrological products) in relation to the use of the seasonal-to-decadal climate forecasts, produced and downscaled by the project, to estimate the evolution of snowpack and glaciers in selected areas of the Italian Alps.
co–leads WP2, where it contributes to the coordinated sensitivity experiment set up, production and analysis. in WP3, Meteo–France leads the task on bias correction and forecast calibration and contributes to the implementation of advanced multivariable forecast scores. In WP4, it contributes to the generation of prototypes of climate services in renewable energy, water management, and agriculture and forestry.
leads the development of empirical forecast systems in WP2. In WP3, it contributes to the development of tools for bias correction, calibration, statistical downscaling, and forecast system combination and selection of sub-ensembles for applications. It leads WP4 and the task on hydrology, contributing to services for renewable energy, agriculture and forestry, and to the activities of communication.
participates in the WP3 to provide feedback about the tools developed It co-leads WP4, developing agroclimatic indicator over the Mediterranean region and for pilot areas. INRA will be in charge of WP4 data storage
works on bias correction and forecast calibration, and on statistical downscaling in WP3, where it also leads the task on forecast combination and selection. It takes part in WP4, contributing to the task on hydrological products, where post-processing tools will be developed and applied to provide information on floods.
Cedex is involved along with AEMET in WP4. It contributes by evaluating the outputs of the distributed hydrological model “Integrated System for Rainfall-Runoff Modelling” (SIMPA) forced both by analyzed data and seasonal climate forecasts. SIMPA is the reference model used by the Spanish authorities for evaluating average monthly water resources in natural flow regime.
