The International Ocean Model Benchmarking (IOMB)

Documentation | Tutorials | Source Code

The International Ocean Model Benchmarking (IOMB) Package is used to evaluate marine biogeochemistry models through comparisons with observations. IOMB provides a variety of in-depth diagnostics of marine biogeochemical model variables on annual and inter-annual time scales. It compares a growing number of variables with site-based, transect, regional, and global observational data sets, and scores model performance based on a combination of bias, RMSE, and seasonal cycle metrics. IOMB is useful for the detailed exploration of ocean biogeochemical model responses and provides an interactive interface designed to enable the user to more rapidly understand the underlying drivers of those responses. IOMB was first applied to evaluate uncertainties associated with marine aerosol precursors (Ogunro et al., 2018).

IOMB uses the same code base as the International Land Model Benchmarking (ILAMB) Package, so some of the links above refer to ILAMB instead of IOMB.

Climpred aims to offer a comprehensive set of analysis tools for assessing the quality of dynamical forecasts relative to verification products (e.g., observations, reanalysis products, control simulations). Climpred supports a broad range of temporal scales of prediction, spanning the weather, subseasonal-to-seasonal (S2S), and seasonal-to-decadal (S2D) communities.
