We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
Climate change is expected to increase risks for the transport sector and the infrastructures it relies on. Sea level rise will affect sea ports and their hinterland connections. Changes in weather conditions (temperature, precipitation, wind) and in extreme water levels (sea storm surges, wave climate) could also represent new risks for sea port infrastructures and activities.
