Initial Request
----------------------------------------------------------------
I'm using stat-analysis to aggregate continuous variables (ME, MSE, RMSE, etc.) for each forecast time. How does stat-analysis do the aggregation of these variables? Does it simply just average them for each forecast time?
Thanks,
Derek Stratman

Derek,
I assume you are running a job that looks something like this:
-job aggregate_stat -line_type SL1L2 -out_line_type CNT
In this case, stat_analysis performs the following steps to generate
aggregated statistics:
1. gather all SL1L2 lines from MET output files in the -lookin
directory
2. filter the SL1L2 lines based on the criteria that you specified,
like fcst_var = 'TMP'
3. if you used the -dump_row option, which I highly recommend, all
filtered SL1L2 lines are written to the file you
specified
4. aggregates the partial sums from the filtered SL1L2 lines and then
computes continuous statistics from the
aggregated partial sums
This process is not the same as averaging the statistics. This
process was designed to calculate statistics as if all
matched pairs from all valid times (e.g. MET output files) were
grouped together. Does that make sense?

Paul,
That answered my original question quite well. One more question
though... what partial sums are FBAR, OBAR, FOBAR, FFBAR, and OOBAR?
I tried searching for the definitions and have a hunch as to what they
are, but I didn't find any documentation.
Thanks,
Derek

Derek,
See page C-9 in Appendix C of the METv3.0.1 User's Guide. The section
called _Scalar L1 and L2 values_ describes those
quantities.

Paul,
Of course I would find the documentation after I emailed you! I don't
think I have any further questions on this matter now.
Thanks for you help,
Derek
