CERA project information for Effects of Climate Change in the Physical Conditions of the Brazilian Shelf

Acronym
ECC-BRS
Name
Effects of Climate Change in the Physical Conditions of the Brazilian Shelf
Description
This project aims to investigate the possible impacts of anthropogenic climate change to the Brazilian shelf waters. This is carried out by analyzing its impact to process at large (Brazil-Malvinas Confluence) and regional scales (shelf water stratification and the upwelling of South Atlantic Central Water), affecting the continental shelf.

These analysis are based on the downscaling of outputs from the Max-Planck-Institute Earth System Model - Mixed Resolution (MPI-ESM-MR, CMIP5) to a domain with high horizontal resolution (1/12 degrees) over the South Atlantic Ocean, using the HAMSOM model.

This is a doctoral research project, funded by the German Academic Exchange Service through a scholarship from its Doctoral Programmes.
