WP2.1 Forecast quality of s2d systems (UNEXE)

The main objective of this Work Package (WP) is to comprehensively assess the forecast performance of seasonal-to-decadal (s2d) hindcast datasets available at the start of the project, to develop and test new tools for forecast verification of s2d systems, tools that will be made publicly available via a web interface and to explore the improvements in performance across the new generation of forecast systems developed in SPECS.

WP2.2 Sources of skill (KNMI)

The main objective of this Work Package (WP) is to identify sources of skill in dynamical seasonal-to-decadal (s2d) forecast systems and to assess the representation of the physical processes responsible in the global forecast systems.
