Researchers recreate European weather

Climate

A comprehensive reanalysis project will recreate the weather across Europe for the past 30 years. Precipitation, temperature, wind and air pressure, etc. are described at ground level and 30 km up in the atmosphere. The result is highly interesting for research and climate adaptation alike.
