ForGEM - initialisation of the climate
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.
