                         data and other common input data are here compared. The comparison 
                         is based on two different AMV input datasets, calculated with two 
                         different image triplets for 21 July 2016, and the use of a 
                         prescribed and a specific configuration. The main results of the 
                         study are summarized as follows: (1) the differences in the AMV 
                         datasets depend very much on the 'AMV height assignment' used and 
                         much less on the use of a prescribed or specific configuration; 
                         (2) the use of the 'Common Quality Indicator (CQI)' has a 
                         quantified skill in filtering collocated AMVs for an improved 
                         statistical agreement between centers; (3) Among the six AMV 
                         operational algorithms verified by this AMV Intercomparison, JMA 
                         AMV algorithm has the best overall performance considering all 
                         validation metrics, mainly due to its new height assignment 
                         method: 'Optimal estimation method considering the observed 
                         infrared radiances, the vertical profile of the Numerical Weather

                         radiative transfer model'.",
