17. Notebook: Investigating upper ocean variability during tropical cyclones and seasonal sea ice formation and melting: Argovis APIs exposed to co-locate oceanic and atmospheric datasets¶
Last edit: 06/11/2021 9:19 pm MT¶
Large portions of code were consolidated into pre-defined functions.
All pre-defined functions were compiled into utilities.py and imported as part of the local library imports (Section 2.2). A list and description of the functions is found in Section 2.3 of the notebook.
Progress bars were added for data download and plotting functions where useful.
This notebook has been submitted to the EarthCube 2021 Annual Meeting.¶
Argovis is a web app and database that allows easy access to Argo profile observations of the global ocean and other earth science datasets using a browser and/or via Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). This notebook serves two main purposes: (i) introducing two new APIs available to access National Hurricane Center tropical cyclone (TC) track data and sea-ice concentration from the Southern Ocean State Estimate (SOSE), and (ii) leverage the capabilities of these APIs with interactive educational activities suitable for courses in oceanography and air-sea interactions. In addition, the notebook serves as a basis for research applications of the two APIs, e.g. to co-locate these datasets with oceanic observations (e.g. profiles of ocean temperature and salinity from Argo) for interdisciplinary research at the interface of different climate system components: the ocean, the atmosphere and the cryosphere.
