oggm.tasks.process_custom_climate_data(gdir, y0=None, y1=None, output_filesuffix=None)[source]

Processes and writes the climate data from a user-defined climate file.

The input file must have a specific format (see https://github.com/OGGM/oggm-sample-data ->test-files/histalp_merged_hef.nc for an example).

This is the way OGGM used to do it for HISTALP before it got automatised.

Parameters: gdir : oggm.GlacierDirectory the glacier directory to process 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:
climate_historical.nc
The historical monthly climate timeseries stored in a netCDF file.
