Tools


MARVL - Marine virtual Laboratory : The Australian Marine Virtual Laboratory (MARVL) is a new development in modelling frameworks for researchers in Australia, co-funded by NeCTAR (www.nectar.org.au). MARVL allows a non-specialist user to configure and run a model, automating many of the modelling preparation steps needed to bring the researcher faster to the stage of simulation and analysis. The tool is seen as enhancing the efficiency of researchers and marine managers, and is being considered as a educational aid in teaching. Most researchers, students and academic staff with have access to MARVL via their AAF(Australian Access Federation) identity, in most cases this is your normal login identity at your local university, institute or federal agency.

MetPy : MetPy is an Open Source project aimed at providing a Pythonic library for meteorological data analysis that meshes well with the rest of the scientific Python ecosystem.
