ICR5 will provide us the opportunity to review progress and discuss future plans in key areas, including:

  • Status of current production systems
  • Observation rescue activities
  • Developments in observational databases
  • Developments in data assimilation
  • Applications, user requirements and feedback
  • Plans for future reanalyses

Climate research has benefited over the years from the continuing development of reanalysis. As reanalysis datasets become more diverse (atmosphere, ocean and land components), more complete (moving towards Earth-system coupled reanalysis), more detailed, and of longer timespan, community efforts to evaluate and intercompare them become more important.

The conference will bring together reanalysis producers, observation providers, numerical modellers and the user community to review current reanalysis activities and to discuss user needs for future reanalyses.

Through this conference, we aim to assess the merits and review the progress in reanalyses, to monitor climate variations and support policy makers to develop adaptation policies, and to provide complementary information to other climate sources.

The conference will be organized around five main topics:

  • Status and plans for future reanalyses
    Global and regional production, inclusive of all WCRP thematic areas: atmosphere, land, ocean and cryosphere – Session organizers: Mike Bosilovich (NASA GMAO), Shinya Kobayashi (JMA), Simona Masina (CMCC)
  • Observations for reanalyses
    Preparation, organization in large archives, data rescue, reanalysis feedback – Session organizers: Marie Doutriaux-Boucher (EUMETSAT), Pierre-Philippe Mathieu (ESA), Nick Rayner (Met Office)
  • Methods for reanalyses
    Data assimilation, Earth-system coupling, uncertainty estimation, challenges specific to regional reanalyses – Session organizers: Magdalena Alonso-Balmaseda (ECMWF), Gil Compo (CU/CIRES & NOAA), Dick Dee (C3S), Zhiquan Liu (NCAR & CMA)
  • Evaluation of reanalyses
    Comparisons with observations, other types of analysis and models, inter-comparisons, diagnostics – Session organizers: Franco Desiato (ISPRA), Masatomo Fujiwara (Hokkaido University), Sonia Seneviratne (ETH), Adrian Simmons (ECMWF)
  • Applications of reanalyses
    Generating time-series of Essential Climate Variables for climate monitoring, validation of third-party products, environmental planning and policies, adaptation and mitigation policies, climate services, industry, scientific research and education, other applications – Session organizers: Andrea Kaiser-Weiss (DWD), Carolin Richter (WMO), Michel Rixen (WCRP), Jean-Noël Thépaut (C3S)


The submission of abstracts starts in February 2017, the deadline is 31 May 2017.
