Products based on an ensemble of forecasts providing an estimate of the reliability of a single forecast.

**The purchase of the "Basic Set" +72, +96, +120, +144, +168 hrs is a mandatory prerequisite for the purchase of time steps in the range 12 to 66 hours.**

The following sub-sets are available from the ENS-WAM:

- IV-i: Wave fields
- IV-ii-a: Probabilities - Instantaneous weather events
- IV-ii-b: Probabilities - Averaged weather events
- IV-iii-a: Extreme Forecast Index (EFI) 1-day ranges
- IV-iii-b: Shift of Tails (SOT) 1-day ranges
