We recently updated the climate change scenario viewer that we developed for AdapteCCa, the Platform on Adaptation to Climate Change in Spain. In this new version, we have made major changes: incorporating new download options, new climate indices, custom visualisation options and more. As always, these new developments have been guided by the needs of the users of the platform, which currently exceeds 1000 monthly users.
Here you will find our latests news, updates about our work and our view about all things related to Big Data, climate services and health. Enjoy it and don't miss a thing: follow us on Social Media!
Recently, the Copernicus Climate Data Store has made available all the 14 domains of the CORDEX: an international initiative to produce regional climate projections. This is a huge milestone, since regional climate models provide higher resolution than global climate models (~11km in European regions and ~22Km over other domains). Therefore, they yield more detail to inform climate mitigation and adaptation efforts at a local level. However, this breakthrough is not as easy as merely republishing the data from CORDEX into the CDS.
Climate action has taken a central focus in Europe. In December 2019, the European Commission launched the European Green Deal, followed by the European Climate Pact in March 2020—together with the EU Climate Law. The 2030 Climate Target Plan was announced last September. To reach the targets set by these European initiatives, a myriad of actions sprung into action. Across the Research and Innovation landscape, one programme stands out: Horizon Europe. A five-mission approach to tackle the challenges Europe is facing.

With this section on our blog we want to go beyond temperature, precipitation and wind, to explore other meteorological and climate indicators that are relevant, specially for specific sectors like agriculture, energy, water management or insurance.
