R&D- Marginal Seas Project

2021-05-19

This project is initiated by DDE and International Association for Mathematical Geosciences (IAMG)

PI: Jan Harff

DDE’s grant up to $150,000 USD for a maximum duration of three years.

This project will try to seek funding from IAMG.

Project Summary:

1)       Integrating interdisciplinary data describing the structure and evolution of three exemplary Eurasian marginal seas (North Sea, Baltic Sea and South China Sea) during the last 130 kyr.

2)       Developing advanced numerical methods (Big Data-driven & mechanistic) of complex geo-systems to generate environmental scenarios for Eurasian coastal areas on the global, regional, and local level.

3)       Applying these methods to three exemplary Eurasian marginal seas (North Sea, Baltic Sea and South China Sea) - to reconstruct the geological and environmental history and - to generate future scenarios applying results of climate modeling by the end of this century.

4)       Mitigating the threats of coastal erosion and other environmental hazards by developing strategies of sustainable management of the coastal zones based on numerical experiments.

Developing open digital platforms of FAIR data and model tools to allow societal stakeholders to generate cause-effect scenarios to optimize impacts of environmental management.
