AOGS session on Quantitative Evaluation Methods for Meteorological Forecasts and Geophysical Products
You are invited to submit an abstract to the session on Quantitative Evaluation Methods for Meteorological Forecasts and Geophysical Products (session AS09) at the 10th annual meeting of the Asia Oceania Geosciences Society (AOGS) in Brisbane, 24-28 June 2013 (http://www.asiaoceania.org/aogs2013).
Session description: Verifying the accuracy of predictions, model simulations, and other geophysical products such as remotely sensed fields, is important to inform users of their quality and guide improvements to those products. While simple metrics like bias and root mean square error continue to be widely used, many diagnostic verification methods have recently been developed to better characterize the nature and sources of error. Spatial forecast verification, and methods for evaluating forecast extremes, are two active areas of research. Led largely by the atmospheric science community, these methods are applicable to many fields within the geosciences. (For a non-exhaustive list of examples, please see http://www.cawcr.gov.au/projects/verification/.) This transdisciplinary session will demonstrate methods for quantitative evaluation of forecasts and geophysical products. Contributions are invited from all areas of the geosciences.
Abstracts can be submitted online at http://www.asiaoceania.org/aogs2013/public.asp?page=abstract.htm. The deadline for submission is 29 January 2013. Hope to see you in Brisbane next June.
Best regards, Beth Ebert and Koh Tieh Yong
