The European Reanalysis and Observations for Monitoring project is a EU funded project that provides timely and reliable information about the state and evolution of the European climate. It combines observations from satellites, ground-based stations and results from comprehensive model-based regional reanalyses. By closely monitoring European climate, climate variability and change can be better understood and predicted.
EURO4M runs from April 2010 to March 2014.
The high-resolution datasets that are produced by the EURO4M project enable us to put observed high-impact weather and extreme events in a long-term historical context. The innovative and tailored products improve the climate change services for society and support adaptation to a changing environment. Whilst EURO4M provides time series showing the changes in climate over time, the project also enables to report in near-real-time during emerging extreme events.
EURO4M is an important building block for GMES (Global Monitoring for Environment and Security), the European initiative for the establishment of a European capacity for Earth Observation. Related projects ahead of a future GMES Climate Service are MONARCH-A , CARBONES and ERA-CLIM .
