1. Examples of applications
Examples of Climate Applications and Climate Services from the ACRE (Atmospheric Circulation Reconstructions over the Earth ACRE)-facilitated 20th Century Reanalysis Project
The ICA&D (International Climate Assessment & Dataset) climate services concept successfully combines the work of WMO`s Expert Team on Climate Change Detection and Indices (ETCCDI) and WMO`s Data Rescue (DARE) activities. The concept builds on the sofware developed for the European Climate Assessment & Dataset (ECA&D), a webportal for daily station data and derived indices brought together under regional cooperation. ICA&D combines the climate monitoring and assessment activities developed in ECA&D with DARE activities.
The European Climate Assessment & Dataset (ECA&D) offers science-based operational services for assessing observed changes in climate extremes in the Europe area. These services rely on high-quality observational data sets provided by the participants. The participants are National Meteorological Services, observatories, and universities. The ECA&D services comprise data gathering of long-term high-quality daily observations from meteorological stations, quality control and homogeneity checks, and analysis of Essential Climate Variables and climate extreme indices.
