Matrix of root-mean-square deviation values
An enhanced version of the Earth System Model evaluation tool (ESMValTool, Eyring et al., 2016) has been developed that exploits a subset of Essential Climate Variables (ECVs) from the European Space Agency’s Climate Change Initiative (ESA CCI) Phase 2. This version of the ESMValTool has been used to demonstrate the […]

5-plot panel showing Météo France's case study results for the Mediterranean area
Météo France has extended the confrontation of models with CCI Sea Level data over the Mediterranean area to include the analysis of three coupled regional simulations (CNRM-RCSM, LMDZ-MED, MORCE-MED) and one Mediterranean Sea simulation (MED12) from the Med-Cordex multi-model ensemble. CCI data enables researchers to better assess model performance in […]
