FeMIPeval consists of a MATLAB and shell library that will allow a user to quickly conduct model-observation comparison and analysis in the global ocean. The package is intended to compare coupled ocean biogeochemical model outputs with observational data from the GEOTRACES Intermediate Data Product 2017 (IDP2017), with a focus on iron measurements. In comparing model-observational data, FeMIPeval uses the approach of Vichi & Masina (2009), combining qualitative plots and quantitative statistics for a thorough skill evaluation. The coding package was born out of the SCOR working group 151 "Iron model intercomparison project (FeMIP)" and the naming convention for some of the scripts is based on the work presented in Tagliabue et al. (2016).
