EGADS 0.8.9

Project Overview:

EGADS (EUFAR General Airborne Data-processing Software) is a Python-based toolbox for processing airborne atmospheric data. EGADS provides a framework for researchers to apply expert-contributed algorithms to data files, and acts as a platform for data intercomparison. Algorithms in EGADS will be contributed by members of the EUFAR Expert Working Group if they are found to be mature and well-established in the scientific community.

EGADS is under development by EUFAR (European Facility for Airborne Research), an Integrating Activity funded by the European Commission. Specifically, the networking activity Standards & Protocols within EUFAR is responsible for development of toolbox, in addition to developing standards for use within the EUFAR community. A compilation of these standards and other Standards & Protocols products is available on the different Standards & Protocols webpages:

More Information:

An overview of how the toolbox is installed and used can be found at the EGADS Documentation (Read the docs: ; PDF file: Documentation directory). Information on the specific algorithms can be found in the Algorithm Documentation (PDF file: Documentation directory).
