The European Climate Assessment & Dataset (ECA&D) offers science-based operational services for assessing observed changes in climate extremes in the Europe area. These services rely on high-quality observational data sets provided by the participants. The participants are National Meteorological Services, observatories, and universities. The ECA&D services comprise data gathering of long-term high-quality daily observations from meteorological stations, quality control and homogeneity checks, and analysis of Essential Climate Variables and climate extreme indices.
