Algorithms For Recalibrating Decadal Climate Predictions – What is an adequate model for the drift? Pasternack, Alexander; Grieger, Jens; Rust, Henning W.; Ulbrich, Uwe

Short summary
Decadal climate ensemble forecasts are increasingly being used to guide adaptation measures. To ensure the applicability of these probabilistic predictions, inherent systematic errors of the prediction system must be adjusted. Since it is not clear which statistical model is optimal for this purpose, we propose a recalibration strategy with a systematic model selection based on non-homogeneous boosting for identifying the most relevant features for both ensemble mean and ensemble spread.
