The CMCC Foundation supports Year of Polar Prediction with the Italian community of PNRA

The Italian National Antarctic Research Programme (PNRA) supports for the first time the Year of Polar Prediction (YOPP) by providing funds to five Italian projects to carry out intensive observational and modelling activities in order to improve prediction capabilities on a wide range of time scales in polar regions. Among the funded projects endorsed by YOPP, INVASI project lead by CMCC scientist Dorotea Iovino. […]

Climate change poised to transform marine and freshwater ecosystems

Nearly 60 million people are employed in fisheries and aquaculture. Climate change poses a risk to their livelihoods. A new report FAO presents new research as well as unique synthesis of the most current scientific information on how a changing climate is altering the world’s oceans, lakes and rivers and reshaping the lives of the communities who rely on them. With the scenarios of ocean change provided by the CMCC […]

Antarctic evolution, from the deep past to the future

How will the Antarctic ice sheet respond to global warming? To answer to this question, it’s essential to understand how it has behaved in the past while modelling its future evolution. A review recently published on Nature Communications explore ice-bed-ocean interactions and the interface processes to improve our ability to describe past major changes, constrain Antarctic ice sheet tipping points and assess rates of past and future sea-level changes […]

Ocean: new insights to understand ocean and climate variability

A research that paves the way for the development of a new, more integrated and strengthened ocean forecast capability. A frontier-resolution representation of the global ocean circulation delivered by ROMEO, the new PRACE project coordinated by CMCC researcher Dorotea Iovino, will allow us to advance our knowledge on oceanic mesoscale dynamics and its role in climate evolution […]
