  • University of Leeds: Kathryn Nicklin.
  • WUR: Ronald Hutjes.

Actions to be taken involving UC:

  • To create an inventory of the impacts models to be run within the project, specifying their mandatory/optional input variables, temporal resolution, required/preferred format etc. --> Met Office will circulate a survey among the impact users.
  • To write down a document describing the basis of seasonal forecast and a glosary including a list of commonly used terms.

Impact users' requests:

  • To locally store subsets of data (retrieved from the SPECS-EUPORIAS data portal) in netCDF format.
  • To directly access the ensemble mean through the SPECS-EUPORIAS data portal (in addition to accessing each individual member).

Open discussions:

  • Possibility to establish new case studies out of Europe, based on the skill of seasonal forecasts.
