|When was the current long-range forecast system implemented?
|Is it a coupled forecast system?
|Is it a Tier-2 forecast system?
|Yes. It is an atmospheric model withe presisted SSTs
|Atmospheric model resolution
|Ocean model (if applicable)
|Source of atmospheric initial conditions
|Source of ocean initial conditions
|If Tier-2, what is the source of SST predictions?
|Persisted SST anomaly from NCEP(Reynolds SST OI v2) of the previous month of lead 0
|Ensemble size for the hindcasts
|10 ensemble members
|How is the hindcast ensemble configured?
|10 different atmospheric initial conditions(lagged approach using 10 daily initial conditions from ERA-5)
|Ensemble size for the forecast
|15 ensemble members
|How is the forecast ensemble configured?
|15 different atmospheric initial conditions(lagged approach usgin 15 daily initial conditions from ERA-5)
|Length of forecasts
|6 months, from lead 0 to 6
|What is the latest date predicted anomalies for the next month/season become available?
|Around the 15th of each calendar month
|How are the forecast anomalies constructed?
|All individual forecast ensemble members and the corresponding climatology are provided for each forecast month, from lead 0 to 6, so that anomalies can be computed.
