Welcome to the home of PyRAMS! This collection of tools was created by Lucas Sterzinger ( to ease the process of working with RAMS model output. Check out the code on GitHub!

Basic usage

The biggest feature of PyRAMS is its extension of xarray. PyRAMS adds named dimensions, coordinate variables, and variable metadata to xarray datasets created from RAMS data. This functionality is outlined in Xarray Compatibility and an interactive example can be run in-browser here. Other functions can be found in API Reference


PyRAMS can be installed via conda:

conda install -c conda-forge pyrams

or via pip:

pip install pyrams
