MEECE is a European FP7 project that uses predictive models to explore the impacts of both climate drivers such as acidification and temperature, and human induced drivers like fishing, invasive species and pollution on marine ecosystems.
The marine environment is complex to understand and until now modelling studies have generally focused on a single or limited range of variables rather than looking at the combined range of pressures facing the marine environment.
To support decision making and EU policy, MEECE has developed models that explore the entire ecosystem by including all relevant or known processes in the system. From the physics that underlie it to plankton, fish and human activities.
