Climate Modelling User Group (CMUG)

The Climate Modelling User Group (CMUG) consist of notable European institutions representing an interface of the CCI program and the wider climate research community. The CMUG is intended as a structured forum allowing for discussion and inter-comparison of assessment methods, agreement on best practices and common standards, and multi-disciplinary assessments of the consistency, error characteristics and impacts of the global data products generated by CCI. CMUG allows for an integrated analysis of all ECVs being addressed in the first Phase of the CCI program.
