The Climate Laboratory

The Climate Laboratory#

A hands-on approach to climate physics and climate modeling

By Brian E. J. Rose, University at Albany

This will evolve into the textbook for both ENV 415: Climate Laboratory and ATM 623: Climate Modeling at the University at Albany.

This book is powered by JupyterBook, and aims to be all of the following:

  • self-reproducing (most figures are self-generating in the notebooks)

  • free and open (permissive license, sources and content available through github)

  • interactive (integration with JupyterHub and Binder will allow readers to run and modify code examples)

  • a living document (content will continue to evolve, and collaboration is welcome)

To view the book online, go here.

The JupyterBook source and all book content (mostly Jupyter Notebook files) are all in this github repository.

Much of the content is made possible by climlab, an open-source Python toolkit for interactive, process-oriented climate modeling. Brian Rose is the principle developer of climlab as well as the author of this book.
