This may be very basic question. But i think it is better to clarify.

'In the Taylor Plot (http://www.ncl.ucar.edu/Applications/taylor.shtml)

RATIO is ?

document says: *RATIO:* ratio of the standardized variances

question is - is it ratio of 'STANDARD DEVIATION' or 'VARIANCE'

because 'STANDARD DEVIATION' = (VARIANCE)^0.5, it makes difference whether
you consider standard deviation or variance.

I think it should be ratio of 'STANDARD DEVIATION' (Taylor, 2001).

Please let me know.

Sanjiv Kumar
