Python package to perform time series analysis of hydrological time series.
Pastas: what is it?
Pastas is an open source python package for processing, simulating and analyzing hydrological time series (models). The object oriented structure allows for the quick implementation of new model components. Time series models can be created, calibrated, and analysed with just a few lines of python code with the built-in optimization, visualisation, and statistical analysis tools.
