MurCSS: A Tool for Standardized Evaluation of Decadal Hindcast Systems

Project description

A Tool for Standardized Evaluation of Decadal Hindcast Systems

This Readme is for the MurCSS tool.

The main documentation can be found here /doc/build/index.html and here

Download and install MurCSS via pypi
pip install murcss

MurCSS needs some additional python packages. If you install MurCSS using pypi, they will be downloaded and installed automatically.
* Matplotlib >= 1.1.0
* Basemap
* NumPy >= 1.5.0
* SciPy >= 0.8.0
* CDOpy

Additionally MurCSS requires a working binary of the Climate Data Operators (CDO >= 1.5.4).

After installation you can use the tool typing `murcss` in your terminal.
* Help:
murcss --help

Now you can see all parameters accepted by MurCSS.

* Outside of MiKlip:

If you are using MurCSS outside of MiKlip, you have to set the `file_system = 'custom'` and specify your data structure in ``.

#If you are working on your own filesystem specify the folder structure:
"defaults" : {}


* Generate Sample output:

Download the files in /sample_data/ and the files in /sample_output/. Adjust the DATA_STRUCTURE to your system. Now you can generate the sample output using
murcss variable=tas project1=baseline1 ...

Download the files in /integration/tests/ and navigate to the directory.
Now you can run the tests using
python -m unittest discover . '*'
Currently some of the tests are designed for the MiKlip file system. Therfore they are commented out.
