  • Deterministic Skill Scores

    To quantify the skill of forecast systems or reanalysis models, deterministic skill scores are used. This report describes some of the most common deterministic skill scores used in meteorology and energy/power forecasting and under which circumstances they are most suitable. These include, among others: Mean error, root mean square error (RMSE) and mean absolute error. […]

  • Can CAPE be used as a post-processing tool for systematic errors in shortwave radiation forecasts?

    This report is a result of research into the use of CAPE as a representation of convective instability in the atmosphere and convective clouds. These clouds would result in differing values of shortwave radiation (SW) and could produce a possible systematic error in reanalysis data. Through post-processing this systematic error could be reduced to create a […]

    Article Title: Met Éireann high resolution reanalysis for Ireland This article provided a description and initial data analysis of the high resolution reanalysis (MÉRA) produced by Met Éireann.  This reanalysis has been constructed with a configuration of the HARMONIE-AROME limited area NWP model at a 2.5km resolution, with ERA-Interim forcing at the boundaries.  MÉRA uses a […]


    EUMETNET = European Meteorological Services Network is a grouping of 31 European National Meteorological Services that provides a framework to organise co-operative programmes between its Members in the various fields of basic meteorological activities. All Members are National Meteorological (and Hydrological) Services of their respective countries. The current list of Members can be found here […]
