PANGAEA - Data from Climate variability and El Niño Southern Oscillation (CENSOR)

Includes data of El Niño and La Niña effects on coastal marine environments and resources. more

The aim of the CENSOR project is to enhance the detection, compilation and understanding of EN and LN effects on coastal marine environments and resources. Local artisanal fisheries and many commercial branches connected to them will benefit from the findings. To achieve this goal we propose a multidisciplinary approach, which enables us to build a comprehensive picture illustrating the response of the upwelling ecosystem to EN events. Scattered data on coastal benthic communities, coastal ichthyologic resources, pelagic-benthic processes and riverine input on coastal systems will be compiled and analyzed comparatively under EN and non-EN conditions. Further, ecophysiological constraints and aquacultural demands will be addressed. All results of the CENSOR project will be integrated in a database and made available to the managers of marine environments and resources as well as to the public at large.
