CMCC Seasonal
Prediction System

The Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change operates routinely a Global Seasonal Ensemble Prediction System (CMCC-SPS3) based on a Coupled Atmosphere-Ocean-Land-Cryosphere Global Model. The Forecast is based on an Ensemble System of 50 members, is produced from initial conditions based on the 1st of every month and runs for six months ahead. Verification scores are based on a complete set of hind-casts (re-forecasts) based on 40-member ensembles and spanning the period 1993-2016.
