snowtools_git: New release in cen SURFEX branch

Added by matthieu lafaysse over 2 years ago

Dear Crocus users,

The cen branch (stable branch for Crocus users) has just been updated with numerous modifications including:

- merge with all technical modifications of SURFEX v8.1 master branch :

- merge of various new developments which can optionnally be activated :

Multiphysical system ESCROC (Ensemble System Crocus). Documentation:
Explicit representation of impurities :
Snow management in ski resorts:
Modification of radiation corrections on explicit slopes:
Add topographic metadata in diagnostic files:
Coupling of Crocus snowpack model with Multiple Energy Balance scheme for snow-vegetation interactions (documentation not yet available)
MEPRA expert system for avalanche hazard diagnostic (documentation not yet available)
SYTRON scheme for erosion/accumulation of drifted snow in the massif geometry (documentation not yet available)

The main technical consequence for standard users is that the namelists from version 8 are no longer supported. Users must adapt their namelists from this version 8.1 example:

Note also that the results of standard applications on slopes are likely to be affected by the changes in the radiations parameterization. There was not any modification in the main snowpack scheme itself.

Note that we will ask all users to update their code in case of bugs in older versions.
(git pull and new compilation)

If despite all our tests, you meet troubles with this new version, please report them through the support interface:

This new release is the result of a long work from many contributors, including a major investment of Rafife Nheili for merging.

Thank you

snowtools_git: The name of SURFEX branch for Crocus has changed.

Added by matthieu lafaysse over 3 years ago

Dear Crocus users,

The main branch for Crocus users was renamed "cen" instead of the complex name "lafaysse_fromV8trunk_withmeb".

To be able to receive the next updates, all of you who installed this branch must do the following command to refer to the new remote name :

git branch lafaysse_fromV8trunk_withmeb --set-upstream origin/cen

Then, optionnally, you can also rename your local branch name for consistency with:

git branch -m lafaysse_fromV8trunk_withmeb cen

EPyGrAM: Release of v1.1.3

Added by alexandre mary over 4 years ago

Commit commit:b53faebc

Advanced netCDF support:
Read/write from/to netCDF files well better handled (examples to come).
Support for any kind of fields, including temporal dimension (from a single Point to a 4D field).
Facility: any field can be dumped to a netCDF file, thanks to the dump_to_nc() method.

Fields' internal data is 4D
Although rather transparent to the user, the internal data storage of fields is now always 4D. This modification brings great simplification in many places.
The getdata()/setdata() methods are hereby essential to use, with the optional d4=True.

Better handling of time dimension in fields
Corrections, modifications linked to previous item, and possibility to extract a time index or extend time dimension with another field (cf. methods).

Animation of fields
Fields with a temporal dimension now propose a plotanimation() method, that create a matplotlib animation, that can be saved to a MP4 file.

"Special resources": or how to get 3D/4D fields from 2D resource(s)
A new proxy function to create easily "special resources" (epygram.resources.special_resource()), that enable to:
- make 3D fields from a resource containing a series of horizontal fields distributed on the vertical;
- make 2D fields + temporal dimension from a series of 1-time resources;
- combination of both.

Better handling of matplotlib's figures and axes in plotfield()
Enables to have multiple plots on the same figure, and a more trustful superposition of plots.

Derivatives for Gauss grid fields (arpifs4py)
Similarly to the cartesian grids, through the compute_xy_spderivatives() method.

Traitement DACCIWA: Jeu de fichiers rayonnement

Added by bruno Piguet almost 5 years ago

Une série de fichiers comportant les mesures du Climat (Cimel) et des Kipp&Zonen a été produit.
Pour l'instant, ce jeu couvre les vols 17 à 23.
Il n'y a pas de correction de l'effet de l'attitude de l'avion sur le rayonnement global descendant.
