Consistent representation of temporal variations of boundary forcings in reanalyses and seasonal forecasts

Project description

Enhanced C3S system for a reliable climate forecast

The most visible result of global warming is an increase in extreme weather events all over the world. Reliable monitoring and forecasting of climate developments have become more important than ever today. With this in mind, the EU-funded CONFESS project will support the societal need for an enhanced Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S). A consistent representation of temporal variations of boundary forcings will allow re-analyses of climate prognostics and improvements of seasonal forecasts with implementation of such improved Earth observation data like land use, vegetation states and surface-emitted aerosols. C3S systems will be enhanced with annual changes regarding land use, adding satellite-derived and prognostic vegetation states or aerosol emissions. CONFESS will help societies in adaptation and mitigation strategies in the face of extreme climate events.
