Record #152608:

Evaluating the performance of cryospheric models / C.J. Van der Veen.

Title: Evaluating the performance of cryospheric models / C.J. Van der Veen.
Author(s): Van der Veen, C. J.
Date: 1999.
In: Polar Geography. (1999.), Vol. 23(2) (1999)
Abstract: Discusses accuracy of numerical models of cryosphere, suggesting models can be confirmed by comparing predictions with independent data not used to calibrate model parameters. Finds most prognostic cryospheric models have not been adequately calibrated and confirmed, so their predictions cannot be trusted.
Notes:

Polar Geography. Vol. 23(2) :83-96 (1999).
