Readers and converters for data from the ECMWF reanalysis models. Written in Python.

Works great in combination with pytesmo.

Citation

If you use the software in a publication then please cite it using the Zenodo DOI. Be aware that this badge links to the latest package version.

Please select your specific version at https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.593533 to get the DOI of that version. You should normally always use the DOI for the specific version of your record in citations. This is to ensure that other researchers can access the exact research artefact you used for reproducibility.

You can find additional information regarding DOI versioning at http://help.zenodo.org/#versioning

Installation

For installation we recommend Miniconda. So please install it according to the official installation instructions. As soon as you have the conda command in your shell you can continue.

The following script will download and install all the needed packages.

conda env create -f environment.yml
source activate ecmwf-models
pip install ecmwf_models

This script should work on Linux or OSX and uses the environment.yml file included in this repository. On Windows the reading of grib files is not available at the moment. On Windows a solution would be to download the ECMWF data in netCDF format instead.
