I need to work with historical weather data (temperature and precipitation), we use meteoblue.com. There (https://docs.meteoblue.com/en/meteo/data-sources/data-sources#data-sources) they write about three different types of models: weather reanalysis models weather simulation models satellite (observation) data Comparing ERA5 (reanalysis) vs NEMS (simulation): daily mean temperature is almost the same in both models ERA often gives 2-4 times higher amounts for total monthly precipitation, which is just too big difference (it's for Europe, I'm interested in past 20 years) I tried to read about the models, but couldn't find any comparison. Also don't really understand how such big differences might occur and which model shall I use.
Often times posters will discuss, compare and contrast historical tropical cyclones and their climatology during an active event thread, but these posts end up buried amongst the overall meteorological storm discussion for obvious reasons. I am opening this thread for current and future discussion as it relates to past tropical cyclone events and their peer-reviewed reanalysis projects. If any person wishes to post about, reminisce or debate past tropical cyclones, regardless of oceanic basin or sea, perhaps they carry that on in this thread so we may have an easier flow of information and archive of such discussion. I have quite a few cyclones to discuss myself and existing preconceptions / misconceptions about a particular region of the Atlantic to flesh out. My first post will be later this evening. But don't wait on me.
