Wind and Temperature Forecasts. 16 members of a ensamble.

Wind /Temp. Forecasts in an ensamble.

Optimal trajectories from NY to Lisbon, for values of p from 0 to 16. Higher brightness in the trajectory color indicates higher values of p. We also color regions of higher uncertainty, which we have defined as σu2 + σv2, with σu being the standard deviation of the u component of wind across different members and σv analogous for the v-component.
