A global weather generator for daily data
Welcome! This synthesis of FORTRAN and Python is a globally applicable weather generator inspired by the original WGEN weather generator of [Richardson1981] and parameterized through a global dataset of [GHCN] and [EECRA] data. A paper with the scientific documentation is in progress, the technical documentation with more information is hosted on github.io.
When using GWGEN, we kindly ask you to provide a reference to the corresponding paper published in Geoscientific Model Development:

We thank Shawn Koppenhoefer for assistance compiling and querying the weather databases and Alexis Berne and Grégoire Mariéthoz for helpful suggestions on the analyses. We are grateful to NOAA NCDC and the University of Washingtion for providing free of charge the GHCN-Daily and EECRA databases, respectively.
