Before you continue

You will need python 3 (possibly version 3.6 or newer), a version of git that is not ancient (everything newer than 2.10 should be good), and up-to-date pip (pip install -U pip) to install the esm_tools. That means that on the supported machines, you could for example use the following settings:

$ module load git
$ module load python3

$ module load git
$ module load python3 /

$ module load git
$ module load anaconda3

$ module load git
$ module load Python-3.6.8


$ module load git
$ module load python

Note that some machines might raise an error conflict netcdf_c when loading anaconda3. In that case you will need to swap netcdf_c with anaconda3:

$ module unload netcdf_c
$ module load anaconda3


  1. First, make sure you add the following lines to one of your login or profile files, i.e. ~/.bash_profile, ~/.bashrc, ~/.profile, etc.:

    $ export PATH=$PATH:~/.local/bin
    $ export LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8
    $ export LANG=en_US.UTF-8
  2. Inside the same login or profile file, add also the module commands necessary for the HPC system you are using (find the lines in the section above).

  3. You can choose to source now your login or profile file, so that the module and export commands are run (e.g. $ source ~/.bash_profile).

  4. To use the new version of the ESM-Tools, now rewritten in Python, clone this repository:

    $ git clone
  5. Then, run the

    $ ./

You should now have the command line tools esm_master and esm_runscripts, which replace the old version.
