The Verification, Post-Processing, and Product Generation (VPPPG) branch of the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP)/Environmental Modeling Center (EMC) has developed a new verification webpage to consolidate and disseminate verification statistics and graphics associated with the models produced by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The development of this new verification webpage coincides with NCEP/EMC’s transition from producing verification statistics and graphics using the Verification Statistics Database (VSDB) developed internally to using the Model Evaluation Tools (MET) and METplus developed externally at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR)/Developmental Testbed Center (DTC). In addition to displaying operational verification statistics and graphics produced using MET and METplus, the new verification webpage provides the framework for allowing users to access experimental model verification statistics and graphics during official model evaluations. This presentation provides a first look at 1) the design of the new NCEP/EMC verification homepage, 2) the ability of individual model verification webpages to display operational and experimental verification statistics and graphics, as well as 3) preliminary verification statistics calculated from experimental Global Ensemble Forecast System (GEFSv12) retrospective forecasts.
