Hi I can take a look next week. From a quick 5 min look through the article though it looks like they used the measured CC data to calibrate the CGC, CDC and CCx parameters each day of the simulation. So the method of adjusting these (and other) params to minimise the mean squared error between ACs CC output to your measurements should still stand. Though you may want to do this every day of the simulation.
Although you can ‘override’ aquacrops CC with your measurements I don’t really see what the point would be if you don’t also adjust the crop parameters with it.
Automatic calibration is a use case we are developing (and also as a web app so the user won’t have to code it up) so it could be a good opportunity to use your data as a test case. Can chat about this more next week
