1 European Reanalysis and Observations for Monitoring MACC Conference, Utrecht, May 2011 GEOLAND2 MyOcean MACC SAFER G-Mosaic ??? Global Monitoring for Environment and Security (EC/ESA)

2 European Reanalysis and Observations for Monitoring MACC Conference, Utrecht, May 2011 EURO4M: European Reanalysis and Observations for Monitoring Project of EU-FP7-SPACE, 9 partners, April 2010 – March 2014

3 European Reanalysis and Observations for Monitoring MACC Conference, Utrecht, May 2011 Goal:meeting the need for climate monitoring information

4 European Reanalysis and Observations for Monitoring MACC Conference, Utrecht, May 2011 Goal:meeting the need for climate monitoring information Need:long-term data and assessments describing climate variability and change in Europe EURO4M

5 European Reanalysis and Observations for Monitoring MACC Conference, Utrecht, May 2011 Goal:meeting the need for climate monitoring information Need:long-term data and assessments describing climate variability and change in Europe …supporting science-based mitigation and adaptation …placing high-impact extremes (such as floods and heat waves) in a historical context

6 European Reanalysis and Observations for Monitoring MACC Conference, Utrecht, May 2011 Example: Flood peak discharge for the river Rhine

8 European Reanalysis and Observations for Monitoring MACC Conference, Utrecht, May 2011 Source: CHR Example: Flood peak discharge for the river Rhine

9 European Reanalysis and Observations for Monitoring MACC Conference, Utrecht, May 2011 EURO4M develops two types of information services: + Reference historical databases Climate Indicator Bulletins

10 European Reanalysis and Observations for Monitoring MACC Conference, Utrecht, May 2011 Reference historical databases contain Climate Data Records from: 1)satellites 2)in-situ observations 3)regional reanalysis of past weather

11 European Reanalysis and Observations for Monitoring MACC Conference, Utrecht, May 2011 Reference historical databases contain Climate Data Records from: 1)satellites spatially extensive but short 2)in-situ observations long-term records but sparse 3)regional reanalysis of past weather complete but expensive (+ some bias)

12 European Reanalysis and Observations for Monitoring MACC Conference, Utrecht, May 2011 ECMWF-ERA Interim (80 km) HIRLAM (20 km) MESAN (5 km) 2m Temperature 2m Temperature 2m Temperature Source: ECMWF and SMHI

13 European Reanalysis and Observations for Monitoring MACC Conference, Utrecht, May 2011 Climate Indicator Bulletins: based on basic Climate Data Records focus on indicators for application sectors include uncertainty estimates
