AMSIMP - Simulator of Atmospheric Dynamics
Initial Conditions - Near Real Time Data Outage
Note: Due to maintenance being carried out by the NOAA, it appears they have decided to remove the data files which the software was utilising for the initial conditions. Further updates will be provided once more is known (2020-05-21).
An open-source ensemble prediction scheme implementation to simulating atmospheric dynamics in the troposphere and the stratosphere. Read the paper.
- Provides a simulation of tropospheric and stratsopheric dynamics on a synoptic scale (Motus Aeris @ AMSIMP).
- Provides the raw data of the simulation of tropospheric and stratsopheric dynamics. The forecasted values are achieved by numerically solving the Height Tendency and Advection Equations through the finite difference method.
- Provides an ensemble prediction system simulation, which can be used to determine uncertainty in a weather forecast, as well as, providing a better prediction for the future state of the atmosphere. Instead of running a atmospheric dynamical simulation once (this would be regarded as deterministic), the simulation is run many different time with slightly different initial conditions.
- Provides an option to incorpate a recurrent neural network with the traditional physical model to improve overall accuracy.
- Provides example visualisations of different atmospheric parameters, an example being a contour plot of geostrophic wind, overlayed by wind vectors, with axes being transformed onto a Nearside Projection (a perspective view looking directly down at a point on the globe).
- Provides extensive unit support through the utilisation of the unit module within astropy.
This package is available on Anaconda Cloud, and can be installed using conda:
$ conda install -c amsimp amsimp
