**DIAG Set 14 - Taylor Diagrams
**

Taylor Diagrams were developed by Karl Taylor at PCMDI (paper|tech note) and aim to condense information about variance and RMSE characteristics of a particular model run when compared with observations in a single diagram. The tables summarize the individual metrics for each variable considered including:

*bias*, as absolute percentage difference from observations*variance*, as a ratio of the observed variance*correlation*, correlation coefficient with observations
