The verification software at the US Navy's Fleet Numerical Meteorology and Oceanography Center (FNMOC) has undergone significant improvement and ease-of-use upgrades in the last few years. These upgrades are the topic of this poster. The verification data is now hosted in a single web application allowing multiple types of verification for multiple regions or deterministic models to be quickly and easily accessed. The verification system is capable of producing and displaying Standard Meteorological Parameter verification, Precipitation verification, Point Location verification, Model against Analysis verification, Direct Model Comparisons, Wave verification, Anomaly Correlation results, and Tropical Cyclone forecast aid verification. This poster focuses on both the performance of the Navy Global Environmental Model (NAVGEM) across the verification types handled by the system and on the tropical cyclone forecast aid performance during the 2014 Western Pacific Typhoon Season.
