Later this month, on Wednesday January 27, Dr Angeline Burrell will be presenting a virtual seminar titled “Python tutorial for space physics”. The seminar will be held over Teams at 14:00 (click here to join). Please see below for her abstract.
Abstract: Python is a free and open source programming language that is very useful for scientific data analysis. Many members of the space physics community have developed packages and tools to perform specialised functions commonly used within the community. In this presentation, I will provide several examples showing how Python can be used to display data, perform common data analysis operations, and perform space physics specific analysis. I will also go over some basics of responsible programming practices, which are applicable across all languages, and provide resources for learning more about Python, Python in space physics, and good programming practices in general.
