The procedure of estimating meteorological data is presented in this
The variables reconstructed are: temperature (maximum,
minimum, average), average humidity, minutes of leaf wetness and
total hourly precipitation.
The procedures are based on the
combination of two elements:
a) A method of estimation in which geographic location and
the values of neighbouring stations are considered.
This method is
based on correlation matrices taken from archives.
b) A method based on the general climatology of the station.
The "climatological" value is introduced in auto-regressive
approaches which, from reference daily values, reconstruct the
typical hourly parameter oscillations for the period and location in
The leaf wetness parame...
