The high-resolution reanalysis system COSMO-REA6 has been developed based on the NWP model COSMO. The regional reanalysis system for Continental Europe matches the domain of the CORDEX EURO-11 specifications, albeit at a higher spatial resolution, i.e., 0.055° (6 km) instead of 0.11° (12 km). It comprises the assimilation of observational data using the existing nudging scheme of COSMO complemented by snow, SST and soil moisture analysis modules and uses ERA‐Interim data as lateral boundary conditions. The reanalysis data set currently covers the period 1995-2017 and is continuously extended by DWD.
