Wadden Sea Region CLIMATE ATLAS

The Wadden Sea Forum is dealing with climate change and climate adaptation as it concerns our society and the different sectors.
Answers on these questions are of high interest for the WSF stakeholders. Due to cooperation agreements, the climate office of the HZG (Helmholtz Zentrum Geesthacht) has adapted their existing climate atlas to the requirements of the WSF sectors. For the Wadden Sea Region, several climate scenarios are placed in this atlas and different parameters can be selected. Further information on water levels, wave heights and water currents will be carried out and integrated in the atlas within the coming months. It is also foreseen, to provide the atlas in the Danish, German and Dutch language.

  • What water levels can be expected in the southern North Sea in 2050?
  • How will the vegetation period change over the next decades?
  • Which temperatures can we expect along the coast?

You are invited to experience the atlas with its scenarios under www.coastalatlas.org or follow the link by just clicking on the image.
