Short summary
The paper develops a multivariable integrated evaluation (MVIE) method for evaluating the overall performance of a climate model in simulating multiple fields. MVIE takes multiple statistics of multiple variables into account and is expected to provide a more accurate and comprehensive evaluation of model performance. Moreover, a multivariable integrated evaluation index (MIEI) is also developed to concisely summarize model performance and facilitate multi-model intercomparison and ranking.
