Validation of model results from ARC-MFC

Here, we present results from validation of the model results that are produced by MyOcean's Arctic Monitoring and Forecasting Centre. Presently, validation results are available for

Note that for sea surface temperature, validation results are available both with respect to data from drifting buoys and data from a high-quality satellite product.

Furthermore, aggregated validation results are available as

All values for biases result from subtracting observed values from model results. Hence, a model will have a positive bias if e.g. model temperatures are higher than the corresponding temperature observations.

There is also an overview of the various validation regions, including information on variables with available metrics, available as

Validation results from CMEMS global ocean circulation model, in order to provide product quality information that is supplementary to the results from CMEMS-ARC. Processing and computation of metrics are performed identically to the implementation for the ARC product.

V1 Validation results

A validation report for the real-time V1 forecast system is available here (pdf).

Results from a comparison between version V0 and version V1 of the ocean circulation model is available here.

Validation results from V1 are still available as

V0 Validation results

Validation results from V0 are still available as
