Experimental NOAA/ESRL PSD and CIRES/CDC Forecast of Indian Ocean Index in IndoPacific Domain
Predictions of Indian Ocean Index SSTA (blue solid line) and verification (solid red line). Dashed lines indicate one standard deviation confidence intervals appropriate to the LIM forecast. Indian Ocean Index was calculated in the 4x20 degrees latitudeXlongitude box, centered at lat=0, lon=80E.
|  Verification history|
|  Forecasts, Lead = 3 months|
|  Forecasts, Lead = 6 months|
|  Forecasts, Lead = 9 months|
|  Forecasts, Lead = 12 months|
Time series of actual forecast errors normalized by one standard deviation of the total forecast uncertainty. Given the dynamical assumptions of the prediction model, forecast errors are Gaussian, and the horizontal lines indicate 95% confidence interval.
