Observational Efforts

Along with the modelling module, cross-cutting observational efforts make up the second cornerstone of the HD(CP)² project.
Observations are essential to evaluate the realism of ICON-LEM simulations and of derived products, like parameterizations or information about climate sensitivity. Accordingly a central goal of the observation module is to evaluate and develop encapsulations of relevant data, including statistical properties, over different spatio-temporal scales in order to enable the critical assessment of the HD(CP)² simulations. There will also be tools to enable model-data intercomparison. In the second funding phase of the project, there will also be an adaptation to new requirements (in particular the new model domains).

Detailed descriptions of the work packages that are part of the O module can be found in the menu on the right.
