Abstract

This report summarises the characteristics of five databases that respectively sample the atmospheric temperature, water vapour, ozone, cloud condensate and precipitation simulated by the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts system. Each database contains 5000 profiles described on 91 pressure levels. Their potential applications include statistical regressions, the provision of first-guesses for inversion algorithms and the validation of various models, in particular in the field of radiation.
