UERRA (www.uerra.eu) is a now in its last (4th) year. All the pieces are now falling into place:

 

- Data rescue and development has been completed in UERRA with much more data than anticipated and data development (quality control and homogenisation) has been done on now also the sub-daily time scale;

 

- Improvements have been made to the E-OBS data set, in methodology and in assessing  uncertainties;

 

- The Regional Reanalysis production is in full swing with significant parts of the time periods covered.

 

- Conversion of Reanalysis data to WMO GRIB-2 has been accomplished and archiving in MARS is going on as fast as possible for the common UERRA archive;

 

- Developments of evaluation methods and the common software package has been completed and tried on some of the Reanalysis data;

 

- User contacts and meetings and workshops have taken place with users and also with related Projects and EU stakeholders;

 

- The above components are preparing for operational Copernicus Climate Change Services for which tenders have been issued during the latter part of 2016.
