The role of the Lead Centre is to facilitate the exchange of seasonal and longer range forecast
verification results, as specified in the Standardised Verification System (SVS) for Long
Range Forecasts (LRF) defined in the WMO Manual on the Global Data-Processing System
The Lead Centre will ensure that clear and concise information explaining the verification
scores, graphics and data is available and maintained up-to-date on the SVSLRF website. Also,
links to the participating Global Producing Centres will be listed on the site. The Lead
Centre will provide and maintain software to calculate the verification scores, as well
as recommended datasets for use in the assessments of the forecasts.
Feedback is always welcomed.
