Meteorology

GRASS used together with R-stats provides a powerful toolset to analyse meteorological time series and to perform spatio-temporal interpolation.


d.rast.arrow at work
  • r.series - useful for time series analysis of raster data.
  • v.surf.rst - useful for 2D spline interpolation between sparse data points.


Conventions

Wind meteo data usually follow a convention different from the GRASS one. First, the wind direction expresses the direction which wind blows FROM and not TO (as a non meteorologist might expect). Second, the code expressing the directions differs from the one adopted by GRASS (for aspect, flow direction, etc.).
