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: gdir : oggm.GlacierDirectory the glacier directory to process tmp_file : str path to the CRU temperature file (defaults to the current OGGM chosen CRU version) pre_file : str path to the CRU precip file (defaults to the current OGGM chosen CRU version) y0 : int 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) y1 : int 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_filesuffix : str this add a suffix to the output file (useful to avoid overwriting previous experiments)

Notes

Files writen to the glacier directory:
