oggm.tasks.process_cru_data

oggm.tasks.process_cru_data(gdir, tmp_file=None, pre_file=None, y0=None, y1=None, output_filesuffix=None)[source]

Processes and writes the CRU baseline climate data for this glacier.

Interpolates the CRU TS data to the high-resolution CL2 climatologies (provided with OGGM) and writes everything to a NetCDF file.

Parameters
gdiroggm.GlacierDirectory

the glacier directory to process

tmp_filestr

path to the CRU temperature file (defaults to the current OGGM chosen CRU version)

pre_filestr

path to the CRU precip file (defaults to the current OGGM chosen CRU version)

y0int

the starting year of the timeseries to write. The default is to take the entire time period available in the file, but with this kwarg you can shorten it (to save space or to crop bad data)

y1int

the starting year of the timeseries to write. The default is to take the entire time period available in the file, but with this kwarg you can shorten it (to save space or to crop bad data)

output_filesuffixstr

this add a suffix to the output file (useful to avoid overwriting previous experiments)

Notes

Files written to the glacier directory:
climate_historical.nc

The historical monthly climate timeseries stored in a netCDF file.
