Abstract

The Black Sea Catchment is recognized for its ecologically unsustainable development and inadequate resource management. The 4-year timeframe FP7-funded EnviroGRIDS project (start: April 2009, 27 partners) will address these issues by developing a Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) targeting this region which will be linked to the EGEE infrastructure. A large catalogue of environmental data sets (e.g. landuse, hydrology, climate) will be gathered and used to perform distributed spatially-explicit simulations to build scenarios of key environmental changes. A high resolution (sub-catchment spatial and daily temporal resolution) water balance model will be applied to the entire Black Sea catchment using the Soil Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) on the Grid. SWAT modules for uncertainty and sensitivity analysis on SWAT will also be gridified using the well established Ganga job management and submission tool for front-end job management.
