RavenPy is a Python wrapper for Raven, accompanied by utility functions that facilitate model configuration, calibration, and evaluation.
Raven is an hydrological modeling framework that lets hydrologists build hydrological models by combining different hydrological processes together. It can also be used to emulate a variety of existing lumped and distributed models. Model structure, parameters, initial conditions and forcing files are configured in text files, which Raven parses to build and run hydrological simulations. A detailed description about modeling capability of Raven can be found in the docs.
RavenPy provides a Python interface to Raven, automating the creation of configuration files and allowing the model to be launched from Python. Results, or errors, are automatically parsed and exposed within the programming environment. This facilitates the launch of parallel simulations, multi-model prediction ensembles, sensitivity analyses and other experiments involving a large number of model runs.
Note that version 0.12 includes major changes compared to the previous 0.11 release, and breaks backward compatibility. The benefits of these changes are a much more intuitive interface for configuring and running the model.
