ECMWF ENSemble parameters

This page lists the parameters that are available from the ECMWF ENS (ensemble) for use in dispersion models.

ECMWF ENS

Parameter names are taken from the ECMWF paramater database.

Parameters are listed separately for surface (sfc), pressure levels (pl) and model levels (ml). All parameters are instantaneous.
