Description : Finds, tracks, and characterizes tropical cyclones in climate simulation data
Kyklop analyses the output of climate models to examine tropical cyclones.
At the moment it is limited to analysis of RegCM output.
It can find tropical cyclones, perform tracking, that is connect cyclones in
successive time steps to form tracks, and measure various properties, like
like their maximal wind speed.
This package provides the kyklop command line tool.
Kyklop solves an important problem in climate research.
A scientific publication featuring kyklop has been accepted.
Furthermore it is already in use by people outside of its originating group.
I have applied for membership of the Python Application Packaging Team (PAPT)
and hope to maintain the package within this team.
