Verification Methodology:
(1) GDAS: 1p0 deg GDAS analysis interpolated to 2p5 deg using copygb for T2M
(2) CCPA: 24 h accumulated precipitation from 12 UTC at 1p0 deg
(3) CTL, SP, SP_CFSBC, SP_CFSBC_NSST, SP_CFSBC_CNV: 1p0 deg GFS forecast interpolated to 2p5 deg using copygb for T2M
(4) T2M verified against GDAS 2p5 degree data
(5) APCP verified against CCPA 1p0 degree data. APCP is accumulated every 24 h starting at 12 UTC for each GEFS forecast.
(6) All GDAS analyses are from production HPSS
(7) ALL VERIFICATION IS FOR LAND ONLY
(8) Processed initialization dates (common among all experiments):
(*) w1, w2, w34 T2M
(*) daily T2M
(*) w1, w2, w34 APCP
(*) daily APCP

Exp. Description Sto Phys SST Forcing Analysis
CTL Production forecast STTP RTG anomaly relaxed to climatology GDAS(T2m)/CCPA(precip)
SP CTL w/ new stochastic physics SPPT+SKEB+SHUM RTG anomaly relaxed to climatology GDAS(T2m)/CCPA(precip)
SP_CFSBC SP w/ bias corrected CFS SST SPPT+SKEB+SHUM CFS bias corrected SST updated every 24 h GDAS(T2m)/CCPA(precip)
SP_CFSBC_NSST SP forced w/ bias corrected CFS SST and NSST SPPT+SKEB+SHUM CFS bias corrected SST updated every 24 h with NSST GDAS(T2m)/CCPA(precip)
