In order to design and develop a Compute Service to support better data access to the European ESGF Research Infrastructure, it is mandatory to collect user requirements, gaps and challenges on computing aspects for analysis and processing. To this aim a virtual workshop has been organized to gather this information. This deliverable summarizes the outcome of this workshop. This provides needed information to design and plan the future ENES Compute Service that will be developed within the IS-ENES3 project.

Water management for road authorities in the face of climate change

Thomas Bles, Lise Foucher, Janette Bessembinder, Robert Corbally, John Paul Rooney, Christian Axelsen, Mark Tucker
2018 Zenodo  
European National Road Authorities (NRAs) have recognized for a long time that climate change will have a significant effect on their assets and operations. Especially, water management assets will be affected. The damage caused by floods and rain to infrastructure assets amounts to €600 million annually, making it by far the dominant weather impact already in the current climate, let alone in the future when it is expected that likelihood and intensity of intense rainfall will increase. Many

These challenges exist both in the field of climate science itself as well as in the translation of climate projections into proper design and maintenance of water management systems. This paper presents results of the WATCH project (WATer management in the face of climate CHange) that was commissioned under the CEDR 2015 call - Climate Change: From Desk to Road. It addresses climate change, socio economic evaluation and sustainable drainage systems.

Climate Change Risk Assessments and Adaptation for Roads – Results of the ROADAPT Project

Thomas Bles, Janette Bessembinder, Martial Chevreuil, Per Danielsson, Stefan Falemo, Arjan Venmans, Yves Ennesser, Hjördis Löfroth
2016 Transportation Research Procedia  
Infrastructure is the backbone of our society. Citizens, companies and governments have come to rely on and expect uninterrupted availability of the road network. Extreme weather is an important factor for the reliability of the road network. At the same time it is generally understood that the climate is changing and that this will have significant effects on the road infrastructure. Since road infrastructure is vital to society, climate change calls for timely adaptation. Immediately,

The ROADAPT project was commissioned under the CEDR Call 2012 'Road owners adapting to climate change'. It adopts a risk based approach using the RIMAROCC framework (Risk Management for Roads in a Changing Climate, developed under a previous ERA NET ROAD project). The approach addresses cause, effect and consequence of weather-related events to identify the top risks that require action with mitigating measures for climate change adaptation. Output of the ROADAPT project is a single ROADAPT-RIMAROCC integrating guideline.
