During the last week in November 2017 UERRA will have its General Assembly in Tarragona. (28-29 November, both full days).

Adjoining this the two concluding workshops will be organised, the Synthesis Evaluation Workshop of WP3 and then the Concluding User Workshop of WP8 (30 November morning to afternoon and User WS may start late afternoon 30/11 and Friday morning 1/12 until lunch).

A wide range of activities and results are shown in Newsletter No 3 downloadable under Publications.

SMHI, Météo-France, Bonn University and the Met Office are running their reanalyses in WP2 with the HARMONIE-ALADIN, ALADIN and MESCAN, COSMO and Unified Model systems. More than 25 years of data exist from SMHI but for different decades and not contiguous yet. We concentrate first on 2006-2010 and particularly 2008. After a lot of hard work of extracting out the right data and converting them for the consistent common UERRA archive, we have now started the MARS archiving at ECMWF. The schedule of production and archiving can be seen in the GANTT diagram which will be kept up to date.

The Data rescue activities have completed some 8.2 M data that include a lot of the sub-daily scale and almost all of them have undergone extensive quality controls and corrections.

The UERRA General Assembly (GA) Number 4 was held at ECMWF, Reading from 21 November to 23 November 2016.

Following on from the GA was a Showcase Event 23-24 November, also  at ECMWF,  which means demonstrations of new and just about available data and tools to get them out and use them e.g. graphically.

The Agenda and program with the presentations are on the Meeting page.

On 28 -29 September 2016 a workshop was organized in which the FP7/H2020 Copernicus Climate Change projects shared their expertise and increased convergence on how to define, assess, and communicate uncertainties and data quality. The workshop was hosted by the European Commission in Brussels. See more and view the presentations on the Meeting Page.
