Future Weather Generation with Spatio-Temporal Correlation for the Four Major River Basins in South Korea Lee, Dong-Hwan; Lee, Jae-Yong; Oh, Hee-Seok; Lee, Young-Jo;
Weather generators are statistical tools to produce synthetic sequences of daily weather variables. We propose the multisite weather generators with a spatio-temporal correlation based on hierarchical generalized linear models. We develop a computational algorithm to produce future weather variables that use three different types of green-house gases scenarios. We apply the proposed method to a daily time series of precipitation and average temperature for South Korea.
