On the basis of an extended cluster analysis algorithm, we present a new validation method for the evaluation of simulation experiments characterized by more than one parameter. This method allows the assessment of any parameter combination in space and time. As an example for the effectiveness of the algorithm, the results of two regional climate model runs and observational data have been tested and interpreted.
