Working group 2

Development and implementation

Leader: Prof. Mark ROANTREE, Dublin, Ireland 

Research Coordination Objectives

Objective 2 
  • S : Development and implementation of Micromet_KSP.
  • M : Micromet_KSP with associated data and information sources including pilot data sets and selected indices will be developed ; Micromet_KSP will be implemented through Training Schools, , STSMs, workshops and region/environmental specific case studies.
  • A : Micromet_KSP will be integrated into the Action web page. Case studies will be designed according to region-specific challenges in rural, urban, rural-to-urban and urban-to-rural areas.Exchange files will be stored at general-purpose open-access repository ZENODO.
  • R : Micromet_KSP is a key tool in assessing FAIRNESS main aim. Its implementation will allow comparison and performance assessment of different models :
    1. meteorological (numerical weather prediction (NWP) and soil-vegetation-atmosphere (SVAT)),
    2. agronomy and agrometeorology (crop and fruit development models, agroclimatic (risk) models, pest and disease models),
    3. forestry (tree growth and gas exchange models),
    4. medicine/vector disease control (invasive species distribution models),
    5. urban (air quality, urban microclimate, urban heat island, urban living conditions and urban energy consumption models).
  • T : Basic structure of Micromet_KSP will be uploaded until M06 of the Action. Afterwards, the
    content and functionalities will be permanently updated. Implementation and case studies realisation process will start from M06
