4) Integrated hydroclimate forecasting systems that incorporate both seasonal climate prediction information and initial land surface hydrological memory have become popular in recent years, but their performances need to be rigorously verified over the target areas with comprehensive hindcast experiments, especially for extreme drought cases.
They used what Wehner refers to as a "hindcast attribution method" simulating first the scenario in which the storm occurred, and then a "counterfactual" storm in a world where climate change did not occur.

Declining offshore spend coupled with increasing onshore activity will result in onshore recovering this share of expenditure from lows of 48% in 2016 to 66% in 2020 -- higher than at any point in DW's hindcast. Due to the recovery in onshore OFE expenditure, DW expects equipment lines associated with onshore drilling activity to exhibit strong growth profiles through the forecast period -- Conveyancing Tools, Downhole Drilling Equipment and Tubular Goods will show particularly strong growth profiles, increasing 10%, 13% and 13% year-on-year, respectively.
