Unidata Update: March 2017

In case you missed it — here's a recap of news from the Unidata Program Center for the month of March, 2017.

Deadlines to be aware of:

Unidata Communications Internship Available

Jobs

The Unidata Communications Internship offers undergraduate and graduate students an opportunity to work with Unidata's community services group to create resources for Unidata's Data Management Resource Center (DMRC). This internship is not about writing code, but a familiarity with scientific software in general will be very helpful. The DMRC project involves explaining how researchers are using software in their scientific workflows and investigating new software tools that might be beneficial in their efforts to effectively manage their data.

The application deadline has been extended to 30 April 2017.

NCL Version 6.4.0

NCL

NCAR's Computational & Information Systems Laboratory released version 6.4.0 of the NCAR Command Language (NCL) on February 28, 2017.

NetCDF operators (NCO) version 4.6.5

NCO

Version 4.6.5 of the netCDF Operators (NCO) has been released. NCO is an Open Source package that consists of a dozen standalone, command-line programs that take netCDF files as input, then operate (e.g., derive new data, average, print, hyperslab, manipulate metadata) and output the results to screen or files in text, binary, or netCDF formats.

Graduate Student Opportunity: Modeling Research in the Cloud Workshop

Cloud workshop

With funding from the National Science Foundation, the Unidata program is collaborating with researchers at the National Center for Atmospheric Research and the university community to organize a workshop on “Modeling Research in the Cloud.” The workshop organizers have set aside funds for the participation of five graduate students.

Python-Focused Software Training Workshop at University of Oklahoma

OU

The University of Oklahoma will be hosting a Unidata Regional Software Training Workshop April 27-28, 2017. Unidata software developers will be leading the Python-focused workshop, which will cover the use of the MetPy and Siphon packages in the context of atmospheric science. Attendance is explicitly not limited to OU students and staff; we encourage those within easy travel distance to consider attending.

Registration for the workshop closes on 20 April 2017.

On the Developer's Blog

Unidata Program Center developers write regularly on technical topics on the Unidata Developer's Blog. Most recently, developer Michael James writes about rendering AWIPS data with Matplotlib, Cartopy, and MetPy, and developer describes unit testing in the netCDF-c library using cmake.
