A k – nearest-neighbor simulator for daily precipitation and other weather variables

  title={A k – nearest-neighbor simulator for daily precipitation and other weather variables},
  author={Balaji Rajagopalan and Upmanu Lall},
A multivariate, nonparametric time series simulation method is provided to generate random sequences of daily weather variables that “honor” the statistical properties of the historical data of the same weather variables at the site. A vector of weather variables (solar radiation, maximum temperature, minimum temperature, average dew point temperature, average wind speed, and precipitation) on a day of interest is resampled from the historical data by conditioning on the vector of the same… CONTINUE READING
