HindcastEnsemble.compute_uninitialized(refname=None, metric='pearson_r', comparison='e2r')[source]

Compares the uninitialized ensemble to a given reference.

This will automatically run the comparison against all shared variables between the initialized ensemble and reference.

  • refname (str) – Name of reference to compare to. If None, compare to all references.
  • metric (str, default 'pearson_r') – Metric to apply in the comparison.
  • comparison (str, default 'e2r') – How to compare to the reference. (‘e2r’ for ensemble mean to reference. ‘m2r’ for each individual member to reference)

Dataset of comparison results (if comparing to one reference), or dictionary of Datasets with keys corresponding to reference name.
