Session 1B Verification, Bias Correction, and Postprocessing of Numerical Weather Models. Part I

Monday, 13 January 2020: 8:30 AM-10:00 AM
257AB (Boston Convention and Exhibition Center)
Host: 30th Conference on Weather Analysis and Forecasting (WAF)/26th Conference on Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP)
Joseph P. Koval, The Weather Company - An IBM Business, Atlanta, GA

This session will be hosted by the 26th Conference on Numerical Weather Prediction (26NWP).  We welcome abstracts on topics including (but not limited to) novel methods and applications for bias correction, model-output statistics (MOS), object-based bias correction and post-processing, machine-learning-based bias correction and post-processing, etc.
