CLIMAK is a stochastic weather data generator. The program is written in Turbo Pascal 6 and run under DOS. There are two parts: the module to estimate the climate parameters from historical meteo data and the model to generate daily meteo data series. The considered variables are: daily total rainfall, min and max air temperature, daily integral of solar radiation and reference evaporanspiration.
