WATER-2b-2015: SMEs and Universities sought for a proposal on the assessment of climate change impacts on Water-Land-Energy Nexus at multiple spatial scales
Summary:
A Greek University along with other EU Universities are willing to submit a H2020-WATER-2b-2015 proposal: Assessment of climate change impacts on Water-Land-Energy nexus at multiple spatial scales. SMEs with expertise in water quality-water reuse projects for results dissemination and testing are being sought. Universities for assessing low-carbon options and biomass quantification are also needed. Municipalities and regional authorities are also needed for implementation purposes.
Description:
The common approaches to assessing the impact of climate change on the water-land-energy nexus are qualitative, empirical, and based on ad hoc adoption of hydrologic and climate models. These models focus on metrics at very coarse scales, and they are disjointed from local ecosystem services. Furthermore, no existing model can provide an assessment of the uncertainty of future predictions. The proposed project will link the multi-scale, space-time dynamics of watershed and energy systems to atmospheric boundary layer and Global Climate Models, and provide quantitative uncertainty estimates of their predictions through a wide-ranging effort of analysis, modeling and field observations.

The fine spatial-scale capability of the proposed modeling effort will permit a detailed assessment of agricultural, urban and industrial water uses, and the adoption of low carbon options. The project will focus on watersheds draining in the Mediterranean Sea, where a number of observed metrics already demonstrate trends consistent with a warming climate. Several case studies will be developed throughout the region along the South-East climatic, hydrologic, and agricultural activities gradient. In addition to a synthesis of a large array of existing data sets, in situ monitoring of climatic forcing and alternative energy sources will be studied to provide data for model validation.

The information from climate projections and outputs of hydrologic and hydrodynamic modeling will enable policy makers to develop sustainable water management plans in the European Union. In addition, the quantitative data produced by the modeling and field campaigns will provide the tools necessary for taking appropriate actions to ensure the sustainability of water, land and energy resources for the future.

The team is looking for Universities for integrating low-carbon options and biomass quantification, SMEs with expertise in water quality-water reuse assessement projects for results dissemination, offering practical solutions and performing in situ testing activities. Regional authorities are also sought for implementing the emerged strategies and interacting with the existing regulatory frameworks.
The proposal will be submitted in the first stage of the topic WATER-2b-2015 of H2020.

Proposal deadline (1st stage): 21/04/2015
Deadline for Partner Requests: 28/02/2015
Advantages and Innovations:
The novelty of the research effort lies in the combined use of physically-based models at different time scales to determine the effects of climate change and energy usage on real ecosystems. As an integrated outcome, the proposed research will lead to the determination of specific habitat conditions and their linkage to climate and watershed practice changes. Erosion identification as well as annual sediment yields for a given watershed will be enabled thereby providing quantitative information of land sustainability. This will create an ideal instrument for evaluation and prognosis for basin management and stewardship purposes.
