ARVE group members release WGEN-like weather generator v1.0.0

Prof. Jed Kaplan and doctoral student Philipp Sommer have published the WGEN-like weather generator version 1.0.0 – now available for download.

Version 1.0.0 of the global WGEN-like weather generator (FORTRAN and Python) was developped by Philipp S. Sommer and Jed O. Kaplan with funding from the Swiss National Fund (SNF) and the European Research Council (ERC).

This synthesis of FORTRAN and Python is a globally applicable weather generator inspired by the original WGEN weather generator of [Richardson1981] and parameterized through a global dataset of [GHCN] and [EECRA] data. A paper with the scientific documentation is in progress, the technical documentation with more information is hosted on GitHub at
