Today I published .NET CLI application that is able to download NCEP/NCAR Reanalysis 1 variables into a single NetCDF file. It accesses NOAA ftp and downloads variable data year by year, then merge the the files into a single one with Dmitrov library.
Today my RFc package was accepted and published on CRAN.
With this package you can right now fetch the following environmental parameters
- absolute air humidity
- air temperature
- diurnal temperature rate
- frost days frequency
- wed days frequency
- potential evapotranspiration
- precipitation rate
- relative humidity
- soil moisture
- sunshine fraction
- water vapour pressure
- wind speed
The parameters above can be fetched for the point set of for the geo grid specified.
Today I check whether the background radiation level correlates with the elevation from sea surface.
I show that the correlation between background radiation level and elevation is about 0.03 (uSv/h per km) and this slope explains only 3% of radiation level variation.
