These demos showcase the basic functionalities and capabilities of Dask (a Python-based scalable parallel computing framework) and xarray (multi-dimensional arrays in Python). The main focus is on working with netCDF files, performing basic mathematical operations, and creating plots. Video walkthroughs, Binder-enabled interactive environments, and Jupyter Notebook files are included.
There are two demos available at this time:
- Plotting Mean Sea Ice Concentration (NOAA OISST dataset)
- Creating Interactive Plots of Mean Air Temperature (NCEP/NCAR Reanalysis dataset)
