The Toolkit for Extreme Climate Analysis
TECA is a collection of climate analysis algorithms geared toward extreme event detection and tracking implemented in a scalable parallel framework. The code has been successfully deployed and run at massive scales on current DOE supercomputers. TECA's core is written in modern C++ and exploits MPI + X parallelism where X is one of threads, OpenMP, or GPUs. The framework supports a number of parallel design patterns including distributed data parallelism and map-reduce. While modern C++ delivers the highest performance, Python bindings make the code approachable and easy to use.
The TECA User's Guide is the authorotative source for documentation on topics such as installing TECA, running TECA's command line applications, and Python development. The TECA source code is documented on our Doxygen site.
The TECA tutorials subversion repository contains slides from previous tutorials.
The TECA examples repository contains batch scripts and codes illustrating the use of TECA at scale.
