The KNMI team contributes statistical analysis tools and climate data built in the KNMI Climate Explorer for event attribution. This public web application has fits to standard and extreme value distributions with co-variates that are optimised for extreme event attribution. The group collects and updates observational data in real-time at the Climate Explorer for trend detection in the past record and computation of return periods of the extreme event using long records that reach until the event under study. It also makes available a large set of climate model output that can be used for attribution studies, and stores the data used for past attribution studies to aid reproducibility. Work is in progress to facilitate the synthesis stage of attribution studies.
