Coming releases of PEcAn will come with the ability to utilize Brown Dog for data conversions to model specific formats (part of our Ecology use case with Mike Dietze at Boston University). In developments to come this will aid PEcAn in the usage of large data sets such as NARR. Below you can see an example of Brown Dog being used to process the data needed for the SIPNET model:
and for the ED model:
Special thanks to Betsy Cowdery (Ph.D. student in Earth Sciences), Edgar Black (Research Programmer), and Rob Kooper (Senior Research Programmer) for adding the needed conversions to Brown Dog and interfacing to PEcAn.
