This software, written in the Python programming language, estimates turbulence from Doppler radar data. It ingests radar data using the Department of Energy’s Py-ART open-source radar software toolkit.
Python is open-source and object-oriented, and has a large and growing scientific user community. Moving turbulence-related software to Python takes advantage of this. An importable Python module estimates atmospheric turbulence using the Python scientific computing language.
