NCEP Service Center Evaluations HPC Pete Manousos
Very frustrating evaluation for two reasons:
- Retrotrospective runs from requested events and in different seasons were not available… and thus due to this reason alone (output evaluated was only over the month of November), we can only recommend a “thumbs sideways”. A sound evaluation incorporates runs from different seasons (warm/cold) and real-time parallel runs.
- Evaluation of SREF real time parallel data via the web was poor as usual. At a minimum - comparison plots of the operational and parallel for basic fields (height, temp, rh, PW, qpf) should have been made available. The template to follow are NAM eval web pages. This is a reiteration of an old request. Not having this capability is severely limiting our ability to provide a sound evaluation of real-time SREF output via the web.
Additionally the current web interface locks up frequently and does not indicate to the user if it is still loading data. A better interface is requested.
