The European Space Agency (ESA) has established the "Climate Modelling User Group" (CMUG), to place a climate system perspective at the centre of its Climate Change Initiative (CCI) programme, and to provide a dedicated forum through which the Earth Observation Data Community and Climate Modelling Community can work closely together. CMUG will work with the eleven Essesntial Climate Variable (ECV) projects to achieve this goal.

CMUG is a consortium comprising the Met Office Hadley Centre, the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology, ECMWF and Météo-France whose mandate runs to March 2014.
