Near Real Time Validation

Last validation statistics update:

Surface chlorophyll: MODIS satellite observations versus (minus) MED-MFC model simulation

Last available BioFloats and model forecasts at the observations location

Near Real Time skill performance analysis aims at delivering a sustained on-line skill assessment quality of biogeochemical forecast product (i.e. identify main biases and suspicious trends in the time series, and establish accuracy values for simulated variables). Validation task is performed using both independent and semi-independent data. Independent data are Bio-Argo float data, while semi-independent data, data that are lately assimilated by the model, are Satellite Chlorophyll from CMEMS .

Statistics are computed over the following subdivision of the Mediterranean Sea
