Summary
Abstract: The Climate Predictability Tool (CPT) provides a Windows package for constructing a seasonal climate forecast model, performing model validation, and producing forecasts given updated data. Its design has been tailored for producing seasonal climate forecasts using model output statistic (MOS) corrections to climate predictions from general circulation model (GCM), or for producing forecasts using fields of sea-surface temperatures. Although the software is specifically tailored for these applications, it can be used in more general settings to perform canonical correlation analysis (CCA) or principal components regression (PCR) on any data, and for any application.
