One of the goals of NARCCAP is to compare regional climate model simulations using different reanalyses as driving data. Such comparisons will help establish a baseline for model sensitivity to initial and boundary data. Below are comparisons of CRU observations with HadRM3P output. HadRM3P uses ECMWF Reanalysis-15 as driving data.
