Santander MetGroup Paper Notebooks
There is a growing concern among the scientific community about the lack of reproducibility of many research outcomes (see for instance the dedicated Nature Special Issue). In the specific case of Earth and Environment Science, a majority of papers were mostly (over two-thirds) not reproducible (Baker, 2016).
With this regard, the main objective of this repository is to maintain a number of notebooks reproducing the analyses and figures presented in several journal papers by the Santander Meteorology Group, with an special emphasis in those describing or exploiting the functionalities of the climate4R framework. The purpose of these notebooks is twofold:
- To ease research reproducibility and scrutiny by the scientific community
- To aid users in the application of the
climate4Rtools and related software though the provision of worked examples representing real research problems.

climate4R packages are being actively developed. Thus, the notebooks often indicate the installation of the package versions that were used at the moment of compiling them. Alternatively, there is usually a Session Information section at the end of each notebook with details on the package versions used to compile. As a result, example code may fail if run with different versions. If you experience problems while running some of the examples, please ensure that you are using the appropriate package versions. If the problem persists, just let us know by dropping a ticket in the Issues section of this repo. Thank you!
