A083:
Progress in Reanalysis: Development, Evaluation and Application





Session ID#: 25961

Session Description:
Reanalysis is a scientific method for producing a physically complete estimation of the past state and variability of geophysical systems. Over the last decade, reanalysis data sets has have become a popular tool addressing multiple purposes in weather and climate sciences. Reanalyses are employed as a basis for applications building on long-term gridded data sets, as "true state" estimates in assessing the fidelity of model simulations, or as a source of information when studying short-term variability and long-term changes of the climate system. Continuous developments of reanalysis systems and the production of new global and regional data sets provide constant improvements of quality which are evaluated using independent observations and intercomparison approaches.
The session therefore welcomes contributions on new developments, evaluation and intercomparison as well as applications of reanalyses. We welcome contributions from all types of reanalyses, including but not limited to global, regional, atmospheric, ocean, and coupled reanalysis systems.
