Surface Ocean CO₂ Atlas (SOCAT)

Surface Ocean CO₂ Atlas (SOCAT)

The Surface Ocean CO₂ Atlas (SOCAT) contains measurements of the fugacity of CO2 in seawater around the globe. But in order to calculate how much carbon the ocean is taking up from the atmosphere, these measurements need to be converted to partial pressure of CO2.

We convert the units by combining measurements of the surface temperature and fugacity. Python libraries (xarray, pandas, numpy) and the pyseaflux package facilitate this process.

EUREC4A Cloud Masking

EUREC4A Cloud Masking

EUREC4A, the Field Study, is an international initiative in support of the World Climate Research Programme's Grand Science Challenge on Clouds, Circulation and Climate Sensitivity. EUREC4A will take place between 20 January and 20 February 2020 with operations based out of Barbados.

EUREC4A aims at advancing understanding of the interplay between clouds, convection and circulation and their role in climate change: How resilient or sensitive is the shallow cumulus cloud amount to variations in the strength of convective mixing, surface turbulence and large-scale circulations?

OpenMM

OpenMM

OpenMM is a toolkit for molecular simulation. It can be used either as a stand-alone application for running simulations, or as a library you call from your own code. It provides a combination of extreme flexibility (through custom forces and integrators), openness, and high performance (especially on recent GPUs) that make it truly unique among simulation codes.
