how to import daily meteorological data

Postby » Thu Jun 22, 2017 4:22 pm

I am a new hand in MUSIC learning.
Now I encountered a problem with importing daily meteorological data.
Though I have read the section 3.4 "Meteorological Data" of User Manual, I couldn't find the method of converting .xlsx document into the correct formats.
Could you please send me some examples of meteorological data in txt format?

Try 'Getting started with MUSIC - Meteorological data' in the MUSIC manual. There is a list of data formats with examples. It is probably easiest to save the data from excel as *.csv. Essentially you need two columns, datetime and data with one header line separated by a comma. I suggest importing just a year to start with and check the data is contiguous (no gaps) and has all valid numerical data.

If you have difficulty, eWater support are usually more than happy to help new users get started.

I appreciate you may only have daily data available in your location but otherwise would strongly encourage the use of sub-daily data wherever possible for greatly improved accuracy of results in most situations.
