CCWeatherGen V1.1.2



The climate change weather file generator tool CCWeatherGen has a similar function to the worldwide weather data tool. However, it uses more detailed climate change data and is restricted to the United Kingdom. It was developed at the University of Southampton. Support regarding the tool is provided by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Mark Jentsch.
