Marine Climate and Climate Change

Climate Change is one of the most serious problems facing our planet. That is why both the characterization of the climate and a study of the effects and consequences derived from climate change are particularly relevant these days.

In recent years, the Marine Climate and Climate Change Group has become a leader in the development, characterization and analysis of climate data (marine and hydrometeorological). This has allowed for the development and application of methodologies to study the impacts of climate change on the coast, from risk modeling and analysis to the design of strategies and adaptation measures

The knowledge and multidisciplinary nature of its staff allows combining the modeling of physical processes with a much more integrated vision of the problems that affect our coasts to yield innovative solutions at every scale (local, regional, national and global).

AREAS OF EXPERTISE

Climate Services

Impact characterization

Risk analysis

Design of adaptation measures

TECHNICAL RESOURCES

IHDATA

IHData is the collective name for a database developed by the Universidad de Cantabria’s Institute of Environmental Hydraulics. IHData is able to provide accurate weather statistics on wind, waves and sea level for any European country and on wave climate for any region in the world.
