Python for Atmosphere and Ocean Scientists
The repository contains the Data Carpentry lesson materials for a single day workshop on using python (and git) in the atmosphere and ocean sciences: https://carpentrieslab.github.io/python-aos-lesson/
The lesson materials were written by Damien Irving based on experiences from teaching generic Software Carpentry workshops at the annual conference of the Australian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society (AMOS) from 2014-2017.
The lesson materials have been used in the following workshops and university courses:
- Data Carpentry workshop at the 2018 AMOS Conference, February 2018
- Data Carpentry workshop at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, August 2018
- Changing Global Environments, 3rd year undergraduate subject, University of Wollongong, Semester 2, 2018
- Data Carpentry workshop at the Australian Bureau of Meteorology, May 2019
- Data Carpentry workshop at the 2019 AMOS Conference, June 2019
- Data Carpentry workshop at the 2020 AMOS Conference, February 2020
An overview of the development of the lesson materials and plans for the future was delivered during the Python Symposium at the 2020 Annual Meeting of the American Meteorological Society (see video recording).
Over the past few years, research disciplines such as ecology and genomics have established large communities of qualified Carpentries instructors. These communities collaboratively contribute to the ongoing maintenance and development of the Data Carpentry ecology and genomics lesson materials and have delivered dozens of workshops around the world.
Now that an initial set of PyAOS lesson materials has been developed, tested and published, the goal is to grow the PyAOS instructor community:
- Damien Irving (Climate Change Research Centre, University of New South Wales)
- Sarah Murphy (Washington State University)
- Holger Wolff (ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes, Monash University)
- Kathy Pegion (Department of Atmospheric Oceanic and Earth Sciences, George Mason University)
- Elizabeth Dobbins (College of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences, University of Alaska Fairbanks)
- Alma Castillo (Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego)
- Claire Trenham (Climate Science Centre, CSIRO)
