oggm.tasks.process_histalp_data

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

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

Extracts the nearest timeseries and writes everything to a NetCDF file.

Parameters
gdiroggm.GlacierDirectory

the glacier directory to process

y0int

the starting year of the timeseries to write. The default is to take 1850 (because the data is quite bad before that)

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.
