Bias Correction of NWP Model Data

Bias Correction of NWP Model Data
After taking this lesson, the student should be able to: 1. Explain at least two ways that NWP models introduce bias into the forecast. 2. Demonstrate at least two ways in which bias correction affects an NWP forecast. 3. Identify at least two situations when bias correction will not result in a better forecast for your area. 4. Use bias-corrected data effectively in a medium range forecast. 5. Use bias-corrected data effectively in a 1-2 day (short range) forecast.
