Work packages

The project is made up of five core themes, all subdivided in workpackages

Core themes

CT Title CT leader CT co-leader
CT1 Predictability of key oceanic and atmospheric quantities Johann Jungclaus (MPG) Marie-Noelle Houssais (UPMC)
CT2 Monitoring of North Atlantic parameters Johannes Karstensen (GEOMAR) Karin Margretha H. Larsen (Havstovan)
CT3 Initialization of prediction systems with ocean observations Steffen Olsen (DMI) Mojib Latif (GEOMAR)
CT4 Impact on the oceanic ecosystem and urban societies Mark Payne (DTU AQUA) Koen De Ridder (VITO)
CT5 Dissemination of NACLIM and coordination across EUPORIAS, NACLIM and SPECS Detlef Quadfasel (UHAM) Bart Thomas (GIM)


The workpackages (short WP) are indentified with a code and a title.

The code is WP X.Z

WP= stands for workpackage

X= stands for the number of the core theme each workpackage belongs to

Z= is the sequence number identifying that particular workpackage

(i.e. WP 1.2 is thus the WP number 2 belonging to the core theme 1)
