Scientific exploitation of CCI data

This page describes the use by the climate modelling and reanalysis research community of the CMUG analysis of the ECV datasets.

The CMUG evaluation of CCI Phase 1 data is available in Deliverable 3.1 on the ECV project page.

ECV datasets

The table below lists the ECV datasets being produced by the CCI projects and their general potential for use in climate modelling applications and reanalysis.

The key to the colouring of the table cells is given below the table. The bottom row of the table gives the number of specific applications described by climate modellers when canvassed about using CCI data. Text in the table that is underlined is a link to further information (data sources, analysis, etc.).
