*Abstract:* The EU funded Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) will
provide authoritative information about past, current and future climate
for a wide range of users, from climate scientists to stakeholders from a
wide range of sectors including insurance, energy or transport. It has been
recognized that providing information about the products’ quality and
provenance is paramount to establish trust in the service and allow users
to make best use of the available information. This presentation outlines
the work being conducted to develop a strategy for the evaluation and
quality control (EQC) of the multi-model seasonal forecasts provided by
C3S, including collection of user requirements, development of standards
for datasets and products, the definition of a set of EQC measures for such
products, and the work on defining a provenance and metadata model that is
able to encode such information, and that can be extended to describe the
steps followed to obtain the final verification products such as maps and
time series of forecast quality measures. The metadata model is based on
the Resource Description Framework W3C standard and the PROV vocabulary,
being thus extensible and reusable. It benefits from widely adopted
vocabularies to describe data provenance and workflows, as well as from
expert consensus and community-support for the development of the
verification and downscaling specific ontologies. This presentation finally
describes the software prototype being developed to illustrate the
application of the developed framework, and concludes with a list of work
lines and interests in common with the ESIP IQC.

*About the speaker* Nicolau Manubens is a computer scientist working in the
Earth Sciences Department of the Barcelona Supercomputing Center in Spain.
He is involved in one of the European Copernicus projects.
