Validation of V2 model results from ARC-MFC

Note: ARC-MFC is presently working with transitioning to our suit of V3 models. Validation results for the V3 model results that are presently in operation are available here.

Here, we present results from validation of the model results that are produced by Copernicus Marine Service Arctic Monitoring and Forecasting Centre. Aggregated validation results are available as

Furthermore, validation results for all weekly bulletins are available for the separate forecast variables, 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.

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

Wave model validation is performed daily:

Validation results from Copernicus Marine Service global ocean circulation model, in order to provide product quality information that is supplementary to the results from Copernicus Marine Service Arctic MFC. 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
