DSD-INT 2019 Copernicus Climate Change Service - Empowering the policy, business and the adaption communities - Almond

  1. 1. Copernicus Climate Change Service: Empowering the policy, business and the adaption communities Climate Change Samuel Almond, the C3S team & Contractors ECMWF
  2. 2. Climate Change T h e C o p e r n i c u s C l i m a t e C h a n g e S e r v i c e a n d i t s m i s s i o n Support European climate adaptation and mitigation policies by: • Providing consistent and authoritative information about the climate • Building on existing capabilities and infrastructures (ESA CCI, CMIP, … • Stimulating the market for climate services in Europe
  3. 3. Climate Change W h a t t h e C l i m a t e C h a n g e S e r v i c e h a s t o o f f e r • Open and free access to climate data • Tools needed to use the data • Information on sectoral impacts • Quality assurance • User support and training • Climate change assessments • Outreach and communication A one-stop Climate Data Store
  4. 4. Climate Change Climate reanalysis: ERA5 • Atmosphere/land/wave parameters • 31 km global resolution, 137 levels • Hourly output from 1979 onward • Using 2016 ECMWF forecast system • Using improved input observations • Ensemble data assimilation method • Uncertainty estimates for all variables
  5. 5. Climate Change Aim: Generate seasonal forecast products based on the best information available, to an operational schedule, and make them freely publicly available. S e a s o n a l f o r e c a s t s Horizontal grid: global 1deg x 1deg Ensemble size: • Forecasts: ~50 members • Hindcasts: ~25 members x 24 years (1993-2016) Variables • Surface • 7 vars every 6h • +30 vars every 24h • Pressure (11 levels, from 925 hPa to 10 hPa) • 8 vars every 12 h Agreed NetCDF specification C3S-0.1 (based on CF)
  6. 6. Climate Change Climate projections Providing users with timely access to climate change scenarios produced with state-of-the-art climate models (CMIP, CORDEX)
  7. 7. Climate Change The Climate Data Store - The ‘Catalogue’ • The Catalogue – is a list of climate data products • The catalogue supports data discovery and processing • Functions: • Faceted search • List datasets • Search result can be sorted and filtered • Anyone can browse the catalogue, but only registered users can download the data!

  14. 14. • To provide practical examples of how C3S in general, and CDS in particular, can deliver information of relevance to specific sectors. • To act as benchmarks of good practice. • To document users needs, and whenever possible address those. • To develop services on the CDS data & infrastructure, when possible In particular SIS contracts should develop and make available sector-relevant indicators and tools that were either unavailable or inaccessible before. The Sectoral Information System – ‘Demonstrator climate services’

  19. 19. Climate Change C3S Energy SIS • Integrating climate and energy scenarios • how well prepared our infrastructure is to cope with the climate of the future? • Will the renewable dominated energy mix of the future? Using a historical data, reanalysis, seasonal predictions and climate projections the SIS demonstrates how will be possible to address some of these questions through the SIS demonstrator Contract led by A. Troccoli WEMC

  21. 21. Climate Change Conclusions • Copernicus climate change service has developed an infrastructure that should make simple for users to freely access an unprecedented amount of quality controlled climate data. • The climate data store come with a computational layer that will allow users to write and run their own post-processing routine on the cloud without the need of downloading huge volume of data. • The system comes with a series of exemplar applications (SIS) which show how the infrastructure could be used to address specific user’s problems. • C3S permits the development of applications to underpin service and policy development
