    As part of an ongoing effort at the Unidata Program Center to bring Python-based workflows to the atmospheric science community, UPC developers have created the Unidata Jupyter Notebook Gallery to showcase tools and techniques that may be of interest to community members. The gallery is a collection of Jupyter notebooks that demonstrate ways to work with atmospheric science data using Python. The notebooks use a variety of tools available in the Python ecosystem, including several developed by Unidata.

    Daryl Herzmann of Iowa State University has been awarded the 2016 Russell L. DeSouza Award by the Unidata Users committee. The DeSouza Award honors “individuals whose energy, expertise, and active involvement enable the Unidata Program to better serve the geosciences.”

    Among other activities, Herzmann administers the Iowa Environmental Mesonet website (http://mesonet.agron.iastate.edu/), and provides a Local Data Manager (LDM) feed of the data to community members. He has been instrumental in mantaining a widely-used archive of case study data in GEMPAK and McIDAS AREA formats. In recent years, he has been an advocate for bringing Python-based workflows into the atmospheric science community; his presentation “Web Services & Python use for Meteorology” at the 2012 Unidata Users Workshop helped inspire efforts by Unidata Program Center developers to expand the use of Python in the community.

The Unidata Program center makes a wide variety of near-real-time and archive geoscience data and model output available to the university community. See the Data page for an overview of the available data types and access methods.

Real-time Model Output

Data visualization tools available from Unidata and elsewhere allow you to create dynamic displays of past, current, or forecast scenarios. This display shows a dynamically-selected Region of Interest culled from a regional weather model.
