data.aggregate.narsto generates NARSTO formatted data. The outputted data is defined by a “record type” that corresponds to the type of data being generated. Output is on standard output.

Available record types are determined by the narsto configuration directory.

Command Line Usage

data.aggregate.narsto [--source=archive] [station] record start [end]

  • wdca_abs_1h - WDCA one hour absorption.
