At what stage are we in the programme?

Phase 1

Period: 2010-2014

Focus: first dataset from the CCI project

Phase 2

Period: 2014-2017

Focus: to include additional datasets and to update the results from phase 1.

One aspect of this project phase is on assessing the consistencies between essential climate variables (ECV) which is a unique feature of the CCI datasets.

Phase 3

Period: 2018-2021

Focus: to continue to include additional datasets, to update the results from phase 2, and to conduct further multi-ECV experiments.

Continuation of the assessment of ‘climate quality’ of ECV consistency between CCI datasets, and the inclusion of uncertainties.
