In this website you
will find a collection of data sets containing weather uncertainty
information generated from the numerical weather predicition model WRF
and Gaussian Process models. These data sets can be used in
diverse stochastic optimization studies. Since a lot of effort
has been dedicated to collecting this information, we kindly ask you to
cite the reference papers if you use the data.
