Project Manager of the FP7 Mediterranean Sea Acidification in a changing climate (MedSeA) project

Project Manager of the FP7 Mediterranean Sea Acidification in a changing climate (MedSeA) project coordinated at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB)

MedSeA is a medium-scale FP7 research project addressing ecologic and economic impacts from the combined influences of ocean acidification and anthropogenic warming. Increases of atmospheric CO2 and associated decreases in seawater pH and carbonate ion concentration this century and beyond are likely to have wide impacts on marine ecosystems, including those of the Mediterranean Sea. MedSeA will forecast environmental changes and evaluate their socio-economical impacts driven by increases in CO2 and other greenhouse gases, while focusing on the combined impacts of acidification and warming on marine shell building, productivity, and food webs. The project will involve an international partnership of 16 research groups. These experts will provide science-based projections of Mediterranean acidification under the influence of climate change as well as associated economic impacts. The scientific advances will enable the best advice to policymakers who must develop regional strategies for adaptation and mitigation.

The project manager will assist the Project Coordinator in the day-to-day project management.
