Overview: Why MONET?


Retrieving, loading, and combining data and putting into a common format is the core of MONET. MONET uses the pandas and xarray data formats for data analysis.

  • Open point observations in a common format. pandas excels at working with tabular data or point measurements. It is used for time series analysis and statistical measures.

  • Open model and satellite data in a common format. xarray is used when N-dimensional arrays are needed.

  • Retrieving observational datasets for given time and space.

  • Efficiently combine/interpolate model and observational datasets.

  • Provide easy plotting using proven tools in Python

  • Perform statistics between model runs or observations or models and observations.
