User survey about quality control and evaluation of information on climate change

Logo Copernicus C3S DECM

What is important for users of climate information to be able to judge the quality of climate change data and information products?

In search for answers, GERICS developed an online survey in the context of the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) tender “Data Evaluation for Climate Models” (DECM). The questionnaire was set up such that it could confirm or deny already existing knowledge about user requirements on quality control and evaluation, and at the same time capture more detail on specific aspects and identify gaps from the user’s point of view.

The survey was aimed at a variety of users of climate model results whether scientists of different disciplines, consultants, administration or business. The survey results provided a solid foundation to profile three distinct user types (data user, product user, non-user) and to characterize each based on their level of experience, their habits and needs.
