CMCC RoleTop

CMCC will be directly involved in the climate modelling, by developing scenarios for the XXth and XXIst century in the Mediterranean region. CMCC also contributes to the evaluation of climate change impacts on the phenomenon of saline intrusion, by applying the Regional Risk Analysis.

  • Involvement of the stakeholders
  • Data collection, monitoring and GIS
  • Creation and calibration of a geo-hydrological model
  • Identification of historical and metereological series and climate change scenarios
  • Simulation of the present salt intrusion and in climate scenarios
  • Development and implementation of a practice of regional risk analysis in order to support the strategies of water management
