DeMaria (2010) showed that the statistical-dynamical LGEM intensity errors decreased by up to 30% when the forecast tracks were replaced by the best-track positions while keeping all other model inputs the same as what were available in real time.
Navy are underway to improve the WP and SH consensus forecasts by replacing the underlying statistical-dynamical model STIPS with the more advanced LGEM and SHIPS model formulations.
