CoreClimax: Project objectives
This project will help to substantiate how Copernicus observations and
products can contribute to climate change analyses, by establishing the extent
to which Copernicus observations complement existing Climate Data Records
1. Coordinate with Copernicus ongoing activities and contribute to the
formulation of the Copernicus climate service theme (GCOS, FP7 Copernicus and
climate change projects, ESA CCI projects, EUMETSAT including its SAF
network and EUMETNET as part of the European Meteorological Infrastructure)
2. Propose a structured process for delivering ECVs through the stepped and
quality controlled elaboration of Climate Data Records (CDR), the latter being
derived from prioritisation of the most appropriate input data sets;
3. Propose a validation process aiming at qualifying the accuracy of the climate
variables;
4. Propose a feedback mechanism ensuring that the results of the re-analysis
process get appropriately reflected into updates of the CDR;
5. Propose a process to compare reanalyses.

Maturity Index (Bates-Barkstrom)
 Flow chard of creating and maintaining Long-term Climate Data Records:
 A TCDR (Thematic CDR) may only be considered as a CDR upon the validation
process given by A34, which may form just one component of an ECV
