netCDF-SCM is a Python package for processing netCDF files. It focusses on metrics which are relevant to simple climate models and is built on top of the Iris package.


netCDF-SCM is free software under a BSD 3-Clause License, see LICENSE. If you make any use of netCDF-SCM, please cite the Geoscience Data Journal (GDJ) paper (Nicholls et al., GDJ 2021) as well as the relevant Zenodo release.


The easiest way to install netCDF-SCM is with conda

# if you're using a conda environment, make sure you're in it
conda install -c conda-forge netcdf-scm

It is also possible to install it with pip

# if you're using a virtual environment, make sure you're in it
pip install netcdf-scm

However installing with pip requires installing all of Iris’s dependencies yourself which is not trivial. As far as we know, Iris cannot be installed with pip alone.
