Reproducibility Dataset for CRYOWRF v1.0

This repository contains data required for reproducibility of the results to be published in the associated manuscript.

Apart from reproducibility, the attached datasets also serve as templates for new users to adopt CRYOWRF in their research.

The datasets consist of two folders organized in zip format:

  1. REPRODUCIBILITY_SIMULATION: Consists of namelists for WPS, WRF and SNOWPACK to reproduce simulations published in the manuscript Additional files include datasets (from IMAU-FDM / RACMO, see "credits" below ) as well as helper python scripts to produce *.sno files which are used as initial conditions for SNOWPACK in CRYOWRF.

  2. REPRODUCIBILITY_POSTPROCESSING: Includes outputs of CRYOWRF and python scripts used to prepare figures in the manuscript.

Each of the folders have their own readme files for more details.
