data.aggregate.nilu.archive generates and uploads archived data to the NILU EUSAAR/EBAS archive. What is generated and uploaded is controlled by niluarchive.conf.

It is intended to be called as part one of the aggregators invoked by data.aggregate.station. The archive specifies that data is uploaded aligned on the year for an entire year, so the aggregator configuration should be set to reflect this (1 year interval and 1 year alignment), though if it is not, all that will result is more being uploaded than is strictly required.

Command Line Usage

data.aggregate.nilu.archive [--dryrun=<DIR>] station start end


start and end

The time specifiers for the data to be retrieved. Start is inclusive while end is exclusive, so all data contained within the half open interval [start,end) will be returned. Any convertible time format is accepted. The start is rounded down to the year and the end is rounded up. Data is uploaded in one year segments.


The station identifier code. For example 'brw'. Case insensitive.


Generate but do not send the files that would have been sent. Places them in the directory specified by <DIR>.

Example Usage

data.aggregate.nilu.archive bnd 1994.0 2008.0
