ERA-40 Project Plan


 
 

Introduction

The production and primary validation phase of the ERA-40 project is being funded for a three-year period from 1 April 2000 by the European Union under its Fifth Framework Programme in Energy, Environment and Sustainable Development, through contract EVK2-CT-1999-00027. This Project Plan is based closely on the technical annex of the contract, which follows a form prescribed by the European Commission. It was edited by Adrian Simmons and Rex Gibson of ECMWF, using input from other staff of ECMWF and from the partners in the project. In the planning phase the partners were represented by Klaus Arpe of the Max-Planck-Institut fr Meteorologie, Tony Slingo of the Meteorological Office, Pascal Simon of Mto-France, Gerbrand Komen of Koninklijk Nederlands Meteorologisch Instituut, Roy Jenne and Kevin Trenberth of the National Center for Atmospheric Research, and Brian Hoskins and Julia Slingo of the University of Reading. ECMWF contributors included Tony Hollingsworth, Sakari Uppala, Per Kllberg and Keith Edwards. Rex Gibson was Project Manager for the preparatory phase of ERA-40 until his retirement from ECMWF at the end of August 1999. Sakari Uppala is the current ERA-40 Project Manager.
