Short summary
Software quality assurance is critical to detecting errors in large, complex climate simulation codes. We focus on ocean model simulation data in the context of an ensemble-based statistical consistency testing approach developed for atmospheric data. Because ocean and atmosphere models have differing characteristics, we develop a new statistical tool to evaluate ocean model simulation data that provide a simple, subjective, and systematic way to detect errors and instil model confidence.
