Are revised models better models? a skill score assessment

Description

Standardized experimentation and sensitivity testing are prerequisites for ascertaining the fidelity of new physical and dynamical elements of model formulations. To this end, the climate- modeling community has adopted the Atmospheric Model Intercomparison Project (AMIP), a World Climate Research Program/Working Group on Numerical Experimentation initiative, as one of many vehicles for model validation. The benefit of this experimental design is that the models were integrated in a standardized fashion, all using the same SST boundary conditions, solar constant and CO{sub 2} concentration for the 10-year period 1979-1988. Thus, differences among the simulations are directly attributable to the wide variety of ... continued below
