Survey on methods used for bias adjustments

Bias adjustment will be performed in the FP7 project Climate Information Platform for Copernicus (CLIPC), and the project is carrying out a survey of different methods used and different resoutces/tools/methods that are available.

COST-VALUE can have an input on this, and I would ask anyone in VALUE who are involved in bias adjustment to participate by filling in this SURVEY (a few questions only)

Input to ClipC

The FP7-CLIPC project wants your participation in a survey that helps to develop the Climate Information Portal for Copernicus: a pre-operational portal informing the EU’s one-stop shop for climate data and climate impact indicators, improving on the currently fragmented information sources.


Evaluation also done in SPECS

There is some potentially overlap between COST-VALUE and FP7-SPECS, where one activity involves  validation of s2d forecasts. This activity is lead by the Exeter climate-statistics group (David Stephenson), and involves making an R-package to compute skill scores.
