Producing RegIoNal ClImate Projections Leading to European Services

The third-party funded project “Producing RegIoNal ClImate Projections Leading to European Services" (PRINCIPLES, C3S_34b Lot2) is part of the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S), which is provided by the European Union's Copernicus Programme and managed by the European Commission. C3S is implemented by ECMWF (European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts), currently in a pre-operational phase and expected to become operational in 2018.

The purpose of C3S is to inform policy development in Europe regarding climate change, improve the planning of mitigation and adaptation strategies, and promote the development of new services for the benefit of society. As part of C3S, a Climate Data Store (CDS) will be developed that provides tools, data, products, and services to a range of different users.

As part of C3S, PRINCIPLES will extend the existing ensemble of regional climate simulations for Europe in the most reasonable way. These simulations will be based on a set of selected global CMIP5 and CMIP6 climate simulations. The extended ensemble of regional climate simulations will be integrated in the CDS. It will be the basis for many future products and services.
