Statistical Prediction of the South China Sea Surface Height Anomaly

Figure 6

Variations of RMSE (a, c, and e) and ACC (b, d, and f) of forecasted SCS SSHA anomaly (a, b), forecasted interannual term (c, d), and forecasted residual term (e, f) with respect to lead time (in month) and start month. The solid curve in (a, c, and e) [b, d, f] is (1.0-contour) [0.6-contour]. Note that RMSEs in (a, c, and e) have been normalized by the climatological standard deviations of SCS SSHA anomaly, interannual term, and residual term, respectively.
