The author reflects on the study on forecast and analysis assessment using skill scores by M. Tonai and colleagues. He states that the study focuses on error assessment of the Mediterranean Forecasting System Toward Environmental Predictions (MFSTEP) wherein its accuracy was evaluated in different basins. He believes that a unique error scale is not sufficient since it manifests differences on the systems used. He also outlines the three major concerns of the study that need improvement.
