Estimation of WGEN weather generation parameters in arid climates



Estimation of WGEN weather generation parameters in arid climates



Ecological Modelling 184(2/4): 177-191



This research discusses some of the issues encountered while developing a set of WGEN parameters for Chile and advice for others interested in developing WGEN parameters for arid climates. The WGEN program is a commonly used and a valuable research tool; however, it has specific limitations in arid climates that need careful consideration. These limitations are analysed in the context of generating a set of WGEN parameters for Chile.
