Model intercomparison for cloud fraction



This links on this page show comparisons of the performance of various models at forecasting cloud fraction, particularly focusing on skill scores. For more detailed comparisons with the observations for individual models (e.g. mean, frequency of occurrence, amount when present and PDFs), click on the links to "individual models" below.
