Fleet Numerical Meteorology and Oceanography Center (FNMOC) forecasts the atmospheric environment and weather using several meteorological and oceanographic models. These models' forecasting abilities are verified by comparing the model forecast against the observational data and model's analysis. Currently, some models are verified by several inconsistent, maintenance-intense, non-standardized, and hard-to-use model verification systems designed for a particular model. Some models are not verified because there is no model verification system. This thesis demonstrates the concept of a single model verification system for all FNMOC models to eliminate the inconsistencies and redundancies. The single model verification system standardizes the model verifications and provides the ability to verify those models which are currently unverified. The prototype used a GIJI and web browsers to display the model verification statistics. The prototype demonstrates that convenient access to the model verification statistics could aid FNMOC users in evaluating the forecast models' performance. This thesis identifies and documents the user specified verification requirements for several models and implements the most immediate requirements. A complete quantitative model verification system for all FNMOC models will be implemented incrementally, as all the requirements are identified
