pyPROS: Precipitation type calculation, rain or snow

PyPROS, precipitation type calculation: rain or snow

The PyPROS package applies several algorithms to estimate the precipitation type and discriminate it among rain, sleet and snow.

Given an air temperature and dew point temperature fields a precipitation type field can be obtained. In addition, if a reflectivity field is supplied, the precipitation area is masked.

Installation

To install pyPROS you can have a look at pyPROS installation documentation.

Use

Different precipitation type discrimination schemes are implemented in this package. More information in pyPROS documentation

A set of examples were designed to explore the different possibilities of PROS.

Another repository was created to store sample data and the examples in jupyter notebooks pypros-examples
