WP6 – Characterising ecosystem variability at interannual to decadal timescales: key metrics and functional relationships/mechanisms

We will use new and existing observations (CT1) and state-of-the-art model (ESM, forced ocean and marine ecosystem) simulations to characterise interannual to decadal physical and ecological variability in the case study regions. We will improve understanding of relations between physical and biological variability with a focus on the three case study regions, and determine the key metrics and functional relationships on interannual to decadal timescales.
