A method is described for bit-coding meteorological analyses and forecasts in terms of specifying parameters which measure pattern characteristics. By matching the associated bit strings, an absolute measure of the similarity between forecast and analyzed synoptic fields can be obtained. Applications to numerical model verification, evaluation and development are discussed. Author
