GloFAS skill

Forecast skill

Forecast verification is important to understand the strengths and weaknesses of a forecast system and to build confidence in results. It also provides additional information to help decision makers to assess how they can use GloFAS products to make decisions.
The overall GloFAS forecast performance is summarized using a set of skill scores which highlight different aspects of forecast skill, summarized in the dedicated GloFAS forecasts and GloFAS Seasonal pages. GloFAS performance is also regularly evaluated for specific events and case studies.
The GloFAS team conducts rigorous quality checks and global performance assessments, presented in detail in the GloFAS wiki pages. In addition, users are strongly encouraged to conduct their own analysis to evaluate whether GloFAS forecasts are appropriate for their decision making. Please go to the data and services pages to find out more on Data Access.
