An open source framework for atmospheric model and observational column comparison. Supported by the Atmospheric Systems Research (ASR) program of the United States Department of Energy.
The Earth Model Column Collaboratory (EMC) is inspired from past work comparing remotely sensed zenith-pointing measurements to climate models and their single-column model modes (SCMs) (e.g., Bodas-Salcedo et al., 2008; Lamer et al. 2018; Swales et al. 2018).
EMC provides an open source software framework to:
Detailed description of EMC is provided in Silber et al. (GMD, 2022; https://doi.org/10.5194/gmd-15-901-2022).
For details on how to use EMC, please see the Documentation (https://columncolab.github.io/EMC2).
In order to install EMC, you can use either pip or anaconda. In a terminal, simply type either of:
$ pip install emc2 $ conda install -c conda-forge emc2
In addition, if you want to build EMC from source and install, type in the following commands:
$ git clone https://github.com/columncolab/EMC2 $ cd EMC2 $ pip install .
