The complex network paradigm is a fruitful tool for understanding complex systems in various areas of science. Over the last years, the research field of ‘Climate Networks’ (i.e., the application of complex network tools to climate science) has produced many novel results that have improved our understanding of complex climate phenomena. These range from predicting the El Nino/Southern Oscillation, seasonal changes in the monsoon regions, early warning indicators of climate transitions and descriptions of ocean circulation coherence. In addition, many new tools and theoretical results have been generated which facilitate the network analysis and the interpretation of the results as applied to climate data. [read more]

A habitat model, developed by the JRC and partner scientists, reveals that the main hake nurseries are mostly located from February to June in the northern Mediterranean, on the seabed in depths from 50 to 250 m. Such knowledge can guide decisions for sustainable fisheries management, such as the closure of fishing areas allowing hake stocks to recover from overfishing. [read more]
Years of research, application and targeted policy initiatives have massively improved the safety of Europe's transportation system. An EU-funded project has identified ways for researchers to share their knowledge and work with each other and policymakers, leading to new insights on how to make all transport modes safer for Europeans.
