Welcome to the KNMI Parameterization Testbed (KPT). The purpose of this project is to comprehensively evaluate existing and new parameterizations for general circulation models (GCMs) against atmospheric measurements from various permanent meteorological "supersites" on a continuous, daily basis.

Click on "Resources/Testbed documentation" in the menu on the left to read more about the motivation behind the KPT, its general evaluation strategy, and all details of its configuration. Click on "Standard output" to see prefabricated plots, and "Interactive interface" to start plotting datastreams interactively. Various handy tools are available under "Resources", such as a thumbnail viewer, a simulation chart, and a plot collection manager.

(Hint: if your screen is not wide enough, just hide the menu)
