SPARC Reanalysis Intercomparision Project


In a comprehensive review, the SPARC Reanalysis Intercomparison Project (S-RIP) activity has conducted a coordinated intercomparison of reanalysis data sets with respect to key diagnostics. The results can be used to provide guidance on the appropriate use of reanalysis products in scientific studies of relevance to SPARC and beyond.

The SPARC Reanalysis Intercomparison Project (S-RIP) Final Report, is an early online release of the final report of the SPARC S-RIP Activity. This version has been reviewed in a blind peer-review process, and type-setting has been done to produce this early version of the report. The editorial work that remains to be done will not change the content of the report.
