M?RA Workshop Proceedings (2018)

Abstract Weather observations are routinely used to analyse the past climate. Climate reanalyses may also be used for this purpose. These give a numerical description of the recent climate and are produced by combining models with weather observations. They contain estimates of atmospheric parameters such as air temperature, pressure and wind at different heights above the ground, and surface parameters such as precipitation, soil moisture content and temperatures, and sea-surface temperature. Because they are carried out using a fixed version of a forecast model and a data assimilation system which utilises historical observations, they produce parameters that are physically consistent and often not routinely observed. Thus, climate reanalyses have the potential to extend the knowledge gained from current observation networks. Over the past few years researchers at Met ?ireann have produced a climate reanalysis dataset, called M?RA - Met ?ireann Reanalysis, for the period 1981-2017 for an area covering Ireland, the UK and northern France. This dataset was launched in May 2017 and currently has over 100 users in Ireland, the U.K., Germany, the Netherlands, Canada and the U.S. On May 17th 2018 we held the first workshop for users of the data. The workshop consisted of 15 very interesting talks spread across sessions on climate applications, precipitation and hydrology, energy, waves and storms. Short papers on a number of these talks are included in this workshop proceedings.
