ENSEMBLES Final Report
ENSEMBLES Final Symposium
The ENSEMBLES Final Symposium was successfully held at the Met Office, Exeter, 17-19 November 2009.
Accessing ENSEMBLES Data
ENSEMBLES data are available for researchers subject to the terms and conditions
of use as described in the ENSEMBLES
Information about the datasets and how to access them is described in Appendix 2 of the Final Report.
The ENSEMBLES project (contract number GOCE-CT-2003-505539) is supported by the European Commission's 6th Framework Programme as a 5 year Integrated Project from 2004-2009 under the Thematic Sub-Priority "Global Change and Ecosystems".
The project aims to:
- Develop an ensemble prediction system for climate change based on the principal state-of-the-art, high resolution, global and regional Earth System models developed in Europe, validated against quality controlled, high resolution gridded datasets for Europe, to produce for the first time, an objective probabilistic estimate of uncertainty in future climate at the seasonal to decadal and longer timescales
- Quantify and reduce the uncertainty in the representation of physical, chemical, biological and human-related feedbacks in the Earth System (including water resource, land use, and air quality issues, and carbon cycle feedbacks)
- Maximise the exploitation of the results by linking the outputs of the ensemble prediction system to a range of applications, including agriculture, health, food security, energy, water resources, insurance and weather risk management
The project is directed by Paul van der Linden and co-ordinated by John Mitchell, Director of Climate Science at the Met Office's Hadley Centre for Climate Prediction and Research.
Please see the guidelines for promotion of the project in articles, brochures and presentations.
