Plotting

Please see the following example scripts or notebooks for various Python plotting examples.

Comparing diagnostics from different simulations

Script or notebook Author Description
compare_diagnostics.ipynb Lizzie Lundgren (Harvard) Jupyter notebook that illustrates the steps involved in comparing output from two different GEOS-Chem simulations.

Plotting timeseries data

Script or notebook Author Description
plot_timeseries.py Bob Yantosca (Harvard) Example script that plots timeseries from two different GEOS-Chem diagnostic collections (ConcAboveSfc, SpeciesConc) at a specified location. This is a good example of the using Python xarray and matplotlib packages to create line plots.

Plotting 2D data

Script or notebook Author Description
plot_global.py Daniel Rothenberg Creates a global average plot. Using cartopy_ we can easily visualize gridded model output on maps with different cartographic projections, and then configure them with any aesthetics or features such as continents, geopolitical borders, gridlines, and more.
plot_seasons.py Daniel Rothenberg For a given field timeseries, compute seasonal averages over all data and plot each average on a four-panel figure.
quickplot.py Bob Yantosca (Harvard) Creates a quick-and-dirty plot of a variable in a netCDF (HDF5, GRIB, etc. file). Uses xarray.

Working with files

Please see the following scripts for examples on using Python to manipulate files.

Script or notebook Author Description
bpch2nc.py Bob Yantosca (Harvard) Creates a netCDF file from data contained in a GEOS-Chem binary punch (aka "bpch") file.
concatenate_files.py Bob Yantosca (Harvard) Uses xarray to concatenate several files into a single Dataset.
