THORPEX Interactive Grand Global Ensemble (TIGGE)

Due to the move of our Meteorological Archival and Retrieval System (MARS) to the new Data Centre in Bologna there will be no or degraded access to this dataset at times between June and October 2022.
Please visit our dedicated data centre migration pages for more information.
Thank you for your patience and support during this important move, which will allow exciting scientific developments and overall better service.

TIGGE is a key component of THORPEX: a World Weather Research Programme to accelerate the improvements in the accuracy of 1-day to 2 week high-impact weather forecasts for the benefit of humanity. Global ensemble forecasts to around 14 days generated routinely at different centres around the world. Currently data from ECMWF, JMA (Japan), Met Office (UK), CMA (China), NCEP (USA), MSC (Canada), Météo-France, BOM (Australia), CPTEC (Brazil) and KMA (Korea) is archived.

The TIGGE dataset consists of ensemble forecast data from 10 global NWP centres, starting from October 2006.

Data comprise 6-hourly model outputs for a range of parameters, on surface and single-levels, e.g. Pressure levels. It is freely available for Research and Education purposes.
