Lectures presented at the WMO Training Workshop on the Interpretation of NWP Products in Terms of Local Weather Phenomena and Their Verification
The material to be presented is slightly broader than the title of the workshop might suggest. First, the discussion of statistical techniques and their application is not strictly limited to interpretation of numerical model output. Second, concepts and methods of forecast verification are described from a broader perspective than that traditionally associated with the evaluation of forecasts produced by interpretation systems.
In addition to the formal lectures, we will have the benefit of 10 or more experts from a number of countries who will present invited papers. These papers will give the students and lecturers alike a better understanding of how statistical interpretation and forecast verification are practiced around the world.
