  1. Status and Plans: Major international reanalysis development, including broad disciplinary overviews (e.g., atmosphere, oceans, hydrology, cryosphere).

  2. Validation and Metrics: Intercomparison and validation studies; assessing the impact of the assimilation and analysis increments; innovative diagnostics that characterize the degree to which a reanalysis represents reality and ultimately applicability for weather and climate research.

  3. Data Assimilation: Data assimilation techniques and impact on eventual reanalysis data products, especially producing a climate quality time series.

  4. Space and In Situ Observations: Studies on the quality and stewardship of observations and their use in reanalyses and exploiting new data types and sources.

  5. Application in Support of Climate, Weather and Environmental Services: Innovative research using reanalysis to study the weather, ocean, hydrology and climate, including operational climate monitoring, study of extremes and high impact weather, climate assessment and end-to-end decision making studies.

  6. International Collaborative Efforts: Projects and plans for developing and using reanalysis to the benefit of the international community.
