Project description

Documentation Status


The Potential Source Contribution Function is a tool to investigate the geographical sources origin of chemical species in the atmosphere.

See the UserGuide for detailed information.

Compute large number of backtrajectories

Under the hood hysplit is used to compute backtrajectories. This GUI allows you to compute easily large number of backtrajectories given a starting date and an end date.



Simply clone this repo if you are used to git:

git clone

or download the zipped archive.

You will need python and some other dependancies. See the docs.

Compute PSCF

Select parameters

The second tab of the GUI are the PSCF parameters.



A figure will show up with the PSCF in colorscale. You can clic on a gridcell to see all the backtrajectories that pass through this gridcell.



This GUI is an adapted GUI from the game "The Battle For Westnoth", developed by Elvish_Hunter, 2014-2015, under the GNU GPL v2 license.

Original PSCF script: Jean-Eudes PETIT

New PSCF script and GUI tools : Samuel WEBER

Icons are taken from the Tango Desktop Project ( and are released in the Public Domain.
