GPC Seoul
When was the current long-range forecast system implemented?

System Name : GloSea5GC2
Implimented : May, 2016

Is it a coupled forecast system? Yes
Is it a Tier-2 forecast system? No 
Atmospheric model resolution

UM: N216L85
0.83 lon x 0.56 lat x 85 levels

Ocean model (if applicable)

ORCA Tri-polar grid at 0.25, 75 levels

Source of atmospheric initial conditions ERA-interim for the preiod of 1991-2010 and KMA NWP operational analyses
Source of ocean initial conditions Global Ocean Data Assimilation System (NEMOVAR) from Met Office
If Tier-2, what is the source of SST predictions? N/A
Hindcast Period 1991-2010
Ensemble size for the hindcasts 12 members (from 4 different start dates)
How is the hindcast ensemble configured? Lagged approach, 3 members per start date on the 1st, 9th, 17th, and 25th, of each calendar month. All 3 member share the same initial conditions and differ only due to schemes to represent model uncertainties
Ensemble size for the forecast 42
How is the forecast ensemble configured? Lagged approach, 2 members per each date
Length of forecasts 6 months
Data Format GRIB 2
What is the latest date predicted anomalies for the next month/season become available? 13th of the month
How are the forecast anomalies constructed? Departures from the model climate estimated by the hindcast integrations
