MELODIST: MEteoroLOgical observation time series DISaggregation Tool
MELODIST is an open-source toolbox written in Python for disaggregating daily meteorological time series to hourly time steps. The software framework consists of disaggregation functions for each variable including temperature, humidity, precipitation, shortwave radiation, and wind speed. These functions can simply be called from a station object, which includes all relevant information about site characteristics. The data management of time series is handled using data frame objects as defined in the pandas package. In this way, input and output data can be easily prepared and processed.
