Python implementation of the HYDRUS-1D model

Project description

Phydrus: Python implementation of HYDRUS-1D

Build Status Codacy Badge Codacy Badge This package provides a Python implementation of the HYDRUS-1D unsaturated zone model developed by Šimůnek, J., M. Th. van Genuchten, and M. Šejna. More information on the HYDRUS-1D model is available here. This software is licenced under the GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE found here. The phydrus code is developed by R.A. Collenteur, G. Brunetti and M. Vremec. With phydrus, a HYDRUS-1D model can be created, calibrated and visualized through Python scripts, making it easy to adjust the model and providing a 100% reproducible workflow of your modeling process.

Examples and Documentation

Examples of using Phydrus can be found in the example folder. This folder also contains a number of Jupyter Notebooks that thoroughly explain the use of the software. Documentation is still under development.

Installing Phydrus

1. Installing the Python package

The Phydrus package will be available on the Pypi package index as the software moves towards production ready software. To install in developer mode, use the following syntax:

>>> pip install -e .

2. Compiling the source code

Before you can use Phydrus the adapted Fortran77 files need to be compiled to an executable. The makefile (MacOS/Linux) and the make.bat (Windows) in the source folder are available to create the hydrus executable. Move into the source folder (which you can download from this GitHub page) and use the following syntax in your terminal or windows command line to compile the source code:

>>> make

This should create a Windows or Linux Executable that can be used to run the HYDRUS-1D simulation. In the Python code, you have to reference to the location of the executable so you can store it anywhere you want.

Developing Phydrus

Phydrus is a community effort and help is always welcome. If you have found abug, please open a GitHub issue to report it. Pull requests including bug fixes and new functionality are very welcome and will be accepted on the Dev-branch of this repository.

Citing Phydrus

If you use phydrus for one of your projects, we ask that you cite the code as follows: Collenteur, R.A., Brunetti, G., and M. Vremec (2019) Phydrus: Python implementation of the HYDRUS-1D unsaturated zone model. Version X.X.X
