oggm.tasks.process_custom_climate_data

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
gdiroggm.GlacierDirectory

the glacier directory to process

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.
