2021 DTC UFS Evaluation Metrics Workshop

2021 DTC UFS Evaluation Metrics Workshop

-

The Developmental Testbed Center (DTC), in collaboration with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the Unified Forecast System's Verification and Validation Cross-Cutting Team (UFS-V&V), held a three day workshop to identify key verification and validation metrics for UFS applications.  The workshop was held remotely February 22-24, 2021. 

The goal of this workshop was to follow-on from the 2018 DTC UFS Test-Plan and Metrics Workshop to finalize the identification and prioritization of key metrics to apply in evaluating UFS research products that will help guide their transition from research-to-operations.  Since all UFS evaluation decisions affect a diverse set of users, workshop organizers welcomed members from government, academic, and private sector organizations to participate in the workshop.  In preparation for the Workshop, a series of pre-Workshop surveys will be distributed to interested parties.
