Model banter returns

So looking for correlation or otherwise between animal behaviour and model outputs isn't model output related. Got it!

You could try the Science/Nature part of the forum (if it's still there?) It's what the thing it was started for...God, we even talk about UFOs in there!?

Good grief I don’t look in this thread for 1 hour and apparently the world is ending. Some of you need to get a grip, honestly. How often has either ECMWF-GFS-or UK Met done something simila

Looks like someone has been out celebrating last night snow with a bottle of my favourite Spanish Cava !

Thanks, but I was interested in looking at comparisons with the model outputs and model output verification if and when it comes. Best all round if I just go back to being a lurker.

Why, you clearly know stuff...? I know that this forum is somewhat idiosyncratic in its workings, but you can usually find a section that suits you, eventually (it was actually yours truly who created the Science/Nature section, way back in 2006, in the first place!)...I can assure you that horses' weather-sensitivity is far from the most 'wacky' subject on the forum, by a long way...It's a darned sight more interesting than 9/11/JFK/Vaccination conspiracies and the like.

I am interested because I have a Natural Sciences degree, and anything that questions orthodoxy is, by definition, interesting...?

Up to you...?

I think your post got brushed away at a time when the tone of the thread was negative to say the least!

Its a shame, whilst off topic it was friendly and thought provoking, if only you had waited till now, as your post  would probably fit in with rest of the off topic funny banter type posts now.

Well, that's the thing. I don't know if horses have weather sensitivity so it was interesting to look at that in conjunction with model outputs and model verification etc. I'm a former post doc research fellow in bio sciences in the field of xenobiotic metabolism and the feminization of male fish and how their biology and behaviour changes. I'm not talking about woo here, I'm talking about alterations in gene expression patterns. I ask questions, I look for links that are worth investigating and identify links that are so much marsh gas. Is there a link between horse behaviour and cold weather ahead of time? I don't know. When did I notice the change? Did the change happen at the same time as a model or models made a certain prediction? Was that prediction borne out? If you can't discuss comparing model outputs with model verification, how will you know which models appear to be more accurate and within what time frame? Can you even discuss what the weather is doing now and compare it to what the models were predicting for now 5 days ago, 10 days ago?

8. One for the 'street' that's come up this winter is 'it's all good in the hood' - always make me chuckle!

Reminds me of the flasher who got done for pulling his pud in the hood ?
