原始语种摘要: Vector quantities, e.g., vector winds, play an extremelyimportant role in climate systems. The energy and water exchanges betweendifferent regions are strongly dominated by wind, which in turn shapes theregional climate. Thus, how well climate models can simulate vector fieldsdirectly affects model performance in reproducing the nature of a regionalclimate. This paper devises a new diagram, termed the vector fieldevaluation (VFE) diagram, which is a generalized Taylor diagram and able toprovide a concise evaluation of model performance in simulating vectorfields. The diagram can measure how well two vector fields match each otherin terms of three statistical variables, i.e., the vector similaritycoefficient, root mean square length (RMSL), and root mean square vectordifference (RMSVD)....
