Reanalyses are used primarily for atmospheric model validation. However, reanalyses suffer from a number of limitations that unfortunately restrict their general use. A reanalysis workshop held recently at the University of Reading, United Kingdom, highlighted a number of central issues in climate research. Attendees discussed how these research needs may benefit from a dedicated reanalysis. Specific topics covered included a more in-depth understanding of the general circulation of the atmosphere and a more reliable assessment of climate trends, the hydrological cycle and the calculation of energy fluxes over the oceans.
