Using Python on JASMIN webinar

This webinar explored four case studies for using Python on JASMIN. In a 1 hour webinar, we cannot teach the entire Python language to beginners - but we hope our examples will give you an idea of the things Python can be used for to do science-related coding. Each case study is represented as a Python script that you could run interactively on JASMIN.


For each script, we provide:

  • A breakdown of the workflow into understandable components
  • Commentary on the basic Python concepts/constructs that underpin the script
  • Links to documentation to learn more
  • Links to the example scripts in a public (GitHub) repository

After viewing the webinar you should have:

1. A basic understanding of the following Python constructs:

  • String
  • List
  • Function
  • Numpy array
  • Pandas DataFrame
  • Xarray Dataset

2. Basic understanding of working with Python to:

  • Run a script
  • Send arguments to a function
  • Import modules/libraries

3. Awareness of the Python libraries for data analysis:

  • Numpy
  • Pandas
  • Xarray

4. Knowledge of where to go to learn more
