CSTools: Assessing Skill of Climate Forecasts on Seasonal-to-Decadal Timescales

Exploits dynamical seasonal forecasts in order to provide information relevant to stakeholders at the seasonal timescale. The package contains process-based methods for forecast calibration, bias correction, statistical and stochastic downscaling, optimal forecast combination and multivariate verification, as well as basic and advanced tools to obtain tailored products. This package was developed in the context of the 'ERA4CS' project 'MEDSCOPE' and the 'H2020 S2S4E' project and includes contributions from 'ArticXchange' project founded by 'EU-PolarNet 2'.
