Downscaled Climate Hindcast Skill Visualization

About This Tool

The skill of the NMME hindcasts were evaluated by comparing downscaled hindcasts to actual observations (using the 4-km gridMET UI data for both) and calculated a spatial correlation. Shown here is a table of these correlations (r), where r>0.36 was deemed 'good skill', whereas r<0.36 was not. Note there are some models with r<0.
