Conda Python Environments
CMS maintain an Anaconda Python environment at NCI, with a wide variety of climate and weather related libraries.
You can find the most recent list of libraries at our github repository, or run
conda list with an environment loaded.
To use any of the conda environments you must first run
module use /g/data3/hh5/public/modules
You can safely put this in your ~/.bashrc file
We update the stable environment once a quarter, around when NCI do their quarterly maintenance of Raijin. Otherwise everything in the environment stays fixed, we don't update packages or install new packages unless something is very broken.
module load conda/analysis3
The unstable environment gets updated more often, as we install new packages or apply updates to existing ones. If you ask for a new package it will be installed here.
module load conda/analysis3-unstable
When we do our quarterly update the unstable environment becomes the new stable environment.
Interactive Analysis / Jupyter
For interactive analysis we encourage making use of NCI's VDI system, which allows you to run Jupyter notebooks without waiting in the queue
Requesting new packages
You can ask for a new package to be installed or for an existing package to be updated by emailing email@example.com.
