stglib Documentation

This package contains code to process data from a variety of oceanographic instrumentation, consistent with the procedures of the USGS Coastal/Marine Hazards and Resources Program (formerly Coastal and Marine Geology Program).

stglib serves two distinct but related purposes:

  1. A library to import data into xarray Datasets, which can be manipulated in an interactive Python environment (e.g., IPython, Jupyter notebooks).

  2. A series of run scripts to process data into CF-compliant netCDF files for release to the public.

Currently, this package has at least partial support for:

  • Nortek Aquadopp profilers, in mean-current wave-burst, and HR modes

  • Nortek Vector velocimeters

  • Nortek Signature profilers

  • RBR pressure (including waves) and turbidity sensors

  • YSI EXO2 water-quality sondes

  • SonTek IQ flow monitors

  • WET labs sensors, including ECO NTUSB and ECO PAR

  • Onset HOBO pressure sensors

  • Vaisala Weather Transmitter WXT sensors

  • In-Situ Aqua TROLL sensors

  • RD Instruments ADCPs

  • Moving-boat ADCP data processed using QRev, for use in index-velocity computation

  • EofE ECHOLOGGER altimeters

We have plans to support:

  • RDI Sentinel V profilers
