A meteorological pre-processor can handle input data of various kind: routine meteorological data, data from small meteorological masts of 10 or 30 meters high, heat flux measurements and so on... Does the quality of the pre-processor output depend on the set of input parameters used? This was investigated by comparing a pre-processors output for different input parameters with measurements from a high meteorological tower.
