CCMVal List of Contacts for Observations

The table below gives an overview of observations that could be used for the evaluation of CCMs in CCMVal. If you want to add a dataset to this website or if you want to change an existing entry, please contact  Veronika Eyring and Darryn Waugh. For specific questions on a certain data product, please directly contact the individual contacts. This list is neither complete nor always up to date. The completeness and up-to-dateness depends on the input we receive. It has been created to facilitate and encourage the use of multiple data sets in CCM evaluation, in particular as part of the SPARC CCMVal Report.

For CCM evaluation within CCMVal we are looking for datasets that fulfill the following requirements:
a) Algorithms must be published in peer-reviewed journals or in detailed validation reports that are publicly available
b) Validation results must be published in peer-reviewed journals or in detailed validation reports that are publicly available
c) Bias, precision estimates and averaging kernels (if applicable) should be available
d) Product and format description must be available and perhaps also a disclaimer
e) Level 3 product must be available, i.e. daily and global maps or fields. Level 2 products (on an orbit-per-orbit basis) are not sufficient.
f) Preferred format: CF compliant netCDF, see
CCMVal-2 Data request 2008, example headers for all CCMVal Fields and Reformatting routine and the CF standard name table.
