Validation of V3 model results from ARC-MFC

Here, we present results from validation of Version 3 of the model results that are produced by Copernicus Marine Service Arctic Monitoring and Forecasting Centre. Version 3 corresponds to ARC-MFC ocean and sea ice models PHYS (ARCTIC_ANALYSISFORECAST_PHY_TIDE_002_001), PHY_TIDE (ARCTIC_ANALYSISFORECAST_PHY_TIDE_002_015), BGC (ARCTIC_ANALYSISFORECAST_BGC_002_004), WAV (ARCTIC_ANALYSIS_FORECAST_WAV_002_014), and PHY_ICE (ARCTIC_ANALYSISFORECAST_PHY_ICE_002_011).

Validation results for all weekly bulletins are available for the separate forecast variables, for

All values for biases result from subtracting observed values from model results. Hence, a model will have a positive bias if e.g. model temperatures are higher than the corresponding temperature observations.

There is also an overview of the various validation regions, available as
