We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
A large number of datasets is presently available to the Scientific Community for atmospheric model validation. These data have been made accessible through web sites by the research groups that collected them or, in many cases, can be obtained upon direct request to these groups. The objective of DAM is to facilitate the access to such valuable information to any model developer or user that intends to validate his/her modeling tool.
