qtcm: A Python Implementation of the Neelin-Zeng QTCM1
The single-baroclinic mode
Neelin-Zeng Quasi-Equilibrium Tropical Circulation Model (QTCM1)
is a primitive equation-based intermediate-level atmospheric model
that focuses on simulating the tropical atmosphere.
qtcm package is an implementation of the Neelin-Zeng
QTCM1 in a
object-oriented environment using the
Fortran wrapping tool. The result is a
modeling package where order and choice of subroutine execution can
be altered at runtime, model analysis and visualization can also
be integrated with model execution at runtime, while retaining the
computationally light footprint of the original intermediate-level model.
