Brief summary

scmdata provides some useful data handling routines for dealing with data related to simple climate models (SCMs aka reduced complexity climate models, RCMs). In particular, it provides a high-performance way of handling and serialising (including to netCDF) timeseries data along with attached metadata. scmdata was inspired by pyam and was originally part of the openscm package.
