The DTC Verification team hosted a MET tutorial at NCAR January 31-February 2, 2018 in association with the semi-annual WRF tutorial. This event was the first in-residence MET tutorial since February 2015. There were 31 registered users and several new DTC staff dropped in for pertinent lectures. The tutorial included a half day of lectures on verification basics plus two and a half days of presentations focused on many of the MET tools supplemented with practical sessions that demonstrated the tool. The last day also included training on the METViewer database and display system, used for aggregating, stratifying and plotting statistics, and the newly developed MET+ python wrappers.
METv7.0 was released on March 5th. For more information on MET capabilities, check out the MET Users’ Page: https://dtcenter.org/met/users/
