Statistical Analysis of GCM Output
In general circulation model (GCM) studies, statistical methods are needed for a number of purposes: to validate a model with observations, to identify its response to anomalous boundary conditions or its sensitivity to changes in model formulation, and to determine its predictive skill. The first two problems are discussed in this Chapter 8 and in the next Chapter 9, while the evaluation of forecasts is discussed in Chapter 10.
