The French-based SME ECOCEANA (Ecosystems, Climate, and Ocean Analysis) specialises in the syntheses and the analyses of global multimodel Earth system model simulations and complementary observational databases for marine biogeochemical and ecological applications. Since it was established in late 2013, ECOCEANA has provided services to a number of international clients including the Alfred Wegner Institute (AWI) and the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) in Germany; the Commissariat à l’énergie atomique (CEA), the University of Brest (UBO), the Institute Pierre Simon Laplace (IPSL), and Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) in France; and CSIRO Marine and Atmospheric Research laboratories (CMAR) in Australia. ECOCEANA has participated in national and international projects that span a diverse range of research areas. This breadth of experience places ECOCEANA in a strong position to tackle research questions that require a deeper understanding of the processes linking physics and biogeochemistry to the marine carbon-cycle and ecosystems.
Role in project
For the SO-CHIC project ECOCEANA will primarily focus it’s effort on tasks that involve the evaluation, synthesis, and analysis of heat and carbon uptake/storage simulated in the latest generation of Earth system model simulations (CMIP6) that are used for projecting the impacts of climate change (WP6: T. Roy).
