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.

Joint IPWG-GEWEX Precipitation Assessment


The International Precipitation Working Group (IPWG) and the GEWEX Data and Analysis Panel (GDAP) are releasing the Joint IPWG-GDAP Precipitation Assessement.

This comprehensive report reviews the current state of precipitation products, and includes assessments of sub-daily global satellite precipitation products, discussions of various climate applications of precipitation products, and deliberations on emerging directions and the future of precipitation products.
