Model Selection Guideline

DO select models that capture important geographic features


Deciding what datasets and models are most appropriate depends on the impact of interest, which is closely tied to the physical location. Geographically diverse regions have unique climatic and hydrologic characteristics that are determined by influences like latitude, terrain complexity, proximity to large water bodies, and global atmospheric circulation patterns. Additionally, models are developed and tested in specific locations, resulting in certain models being more skillful in capturing certain environmental attributes better than others.

Thanks for expressing interest in this guideline. More details will be included in version 2.0, coming soon. If you would like to be updated when more information is posted, let us know (click button below)...
