With TC Footprint, I was inspired by vectorization ideas from From Python to Numpy so I wanted to see if I could try vectorizing the tropical cyclone footprint method found in my first paper, but this time instead of using NCL, I am using Python, and instead of using loops, hopefully using vectorization!

I will be using:

  • xarray and pandas for data processing and interpolation

  • ahlive for animations

The following pages will demonstrate how I go about it implementing this.
