Short summary
The performance of the IRI-2016 model in simulating GPS-TEC is assessed based on various statistical tools during two distinct solar activity periods. In particular, the categorical metrics used in the study to assess the performance of the empirical and climatological IRI-2016 model at the margins of the TEC distribution reveal remarkable model skill in simulating the observed tails of the TEC distribution, which is much better than accurately simulating the observed climatology as designed.
