OMUSE stands for Oceanographic MUltipurpose Software Environment. It is a package to conduct numerical experiments in oceanography and other Earth sciences. Example OMUSE applications can be found in the examples repository.
For whom is OMUSE?
OMUSE aims to be useable by any researcher or student with a basic knowledge of the Python programming language.
What is this repository for?
This repository contains the source tree for OMUSE, including OMUSE specific framework components and community codes.
How do I get set up?
While there are some packages available on pipy, we recommend at the moment to do a pip developer install:
- setup a python environment, e.g. using virtualenv, and activate it.
- in a suitable working directory clone the AMUSE repository:
git clone https://github.com/amusecode/amuse
- go into the created directory:
- do the developer install from here:
pip install -e . [MPI]The MPI is optional.
- Going back to the working directory (
cd ..) also clone the OMUSE repository:
git clone https://github.com/omuse-geoscience/omuse,
- go into the source directory
cd omuseand set the environment variable
- now, do
pip install -e .from the root of the package
python setup.py build_codes --inplaceto build the codes.
- the file
build.logwill report any errors in the build process.
This installs amuse-devel and omuse-devel. The community codes of OMUSE can be build manually by going into each directory:
and typing: first
make download (for some) and then
OMUSE has been tested on OSX and linux machines, with ifort and gfortran compilers, on desktop machines and on the Carthesius supercomputer.
In addition to the AMUSE dependencies, OMUSE needs/ can use the following packages:
- matplotlib basemap
- netCDF and netCDF for fortran and the python bindings
Issues can be reported at the OMUSE issue tracker; for framework issues, report them at the AMUSE repository.
