Project

EURO4M EUropean Reanalysis and Observations for Monitoring


Description:

EURO4M developed the capacity for, and deliver the best possible and most complete (gridded) climate change time series and monitoring services covering all of Europe. These described the evolution of the Earth system components by seamlessly combining two different but complementary approaches: regional observation datasets of Essential Climate Variables (ECVs) on the one hand and model based regional reanalysis on the other. The project extended, in a cost effective manner, European capacity to systematically monitor climate variability and change (including extremes) on a range of space and time scales. EURO4M reached out with innovative and integrated data products and climate change services to policy-makers, researchers, planners and citizens at European, national and local levels. This will directly address the needs of, for instance, the European Environment Agency for their environmental assessment reports - and even provide online reporting during emerging extreme events.
