UERRA ( 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.

Production Renanalyses in UERRA


The Met Office, SMHI, Météo-France and University of Bonn area each running their European Regional Reanalyses in production and are at varying advanced stages of production. Moreover, the ECMW MARS archives of UERRA are being populated with renalysisis grid point fields in GRIB2. Below is a current (January 2017) picture of the status and plans for the rest of the project. Certain periods like 2005-10 and 1981-85 are of priority to be completed for all (not Univ. of Bonn since only 5 years are planned for them).
