ENSEMBLE is a web-based platform for the inter-comparison and evaluation of atmospheric chemistry transport and dispersion models that operated between 2000 and 2022. The system was originally developed for support in case of nuclear emergencies and has evolved over time into a service to any kind of atmospheric model.
ENSEMBLE could now be used for the inter-comparison and evaluation of models working at scales from local to global and can handle any number of variables and period of time and portion of the globe. Several are the activities in which ENSEMBLE has been used:
- Data sets of monitoring data
- In situ air quality
- Radiological meteorological data
- Vertical profiles and airborne data availability for many case studies
The ENSEMBLE system also allowed users to perform online ensemble treatment. Several tens of case studies many with corresponding monitoring data were gathered over the years.
