Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The objectives of this study are the development of a newly designed weather generator for daily mean air temperature and a description of its performance. Sequentially generated data of the temperature respond to occurrence frequencies of the pressure patterns in East Asia. The generator is effective as a practical and conjunctive model between GCM and crop productivity in the field.
