Beginnings of a python package for working with the GSFC and ISMIP6 Ice Sheet Models


Example Jupyter Notebook - Plot Uploaded Ice Sheet Model for Greenland


To use the example, a number of python packages must be installed, including:

* numpy -
* xarray -
* netcdf4-python -
* matplotlib -
* cartopy -

At the moment, these must be installed manually, as this toolkit has not been packaged as a standalone module.

This module has been tested for Python 2.5.1 and Python 3.6.5 installed via Anaconda.

Note:  On VHub,  currently the required xarray, netcdf4 and cartopy packages are installed for Python 2.5.1 only. 


The example notebook loads two datasets:

* GIS Model `` (available upon request)
* Any uploaded GIS Ice Sheet Model
