For monthly reconstructions, it is possible to focus on particular months. Selections on the left will populate all other tabs.
While this indicates a relatively poor calibration, it may be acceptable depending on your use case. Carefully consider how you will use the reconstruction and double-check the fit before proceeding.
This means the reconstruction performs worse than if the model had assumed the historical average for all years. While this indicates a relatively poor calibration, it may be acceptable depending on your use case. Carefully consider how you will use the reconstruction and double-check the fit before proceeding.
There was a large decrease in predictive skill in the validation step, indicating possibility of an over-fit model that could perform poorly outside the calibration period. This may be acceptable depending on your use case. Carefully consider how you will use the reconstruction and double-check the fit before proceeding.
Fit could not be confirmed because instrumental data was not available or submitted. We recommend contacting the original authors to understand reconstruction skill before proceeding.
Reconstructed flows plotted against observed flows for the instrumental (calibration) period. A perfect calibration fit would be along the 1:1 line, shown in red.

To submit a new reconstruction, first download the template (Step 1). Then upload the completed template (Step 2). Please include as much metadata in the CSV file as possible, along with entering a name for the reconstruction and a valid email address so that we may contact in case of questions (Step 3). Finally, push Submit (Step 4).
