Initialization of the Climate

Daily meteorologal data for incoming radiation, minimum and maximum temperate, precipitation, vapour pressure deficit, relative humudity and wind speed are obtained from ISI-MIP website. This data is made available in NetCDF. The I/O module of the ForGEM model is developed duch that it can be read and write NetCDF formatted files (v4). The figures give examples of the pan-European distribution of some daily meteorological variables.
