The Sea Observations Utility for Reprocessing, Calibration and Evaluation (SOURCE) is a Python 3.x package which has been developed within the framework of different Italian and European projects by the Oceanography team in Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia INGV ( SOURCE aims to manage jobs with in situ observations and data model from Ocean General Circulation Models (OGCMs) in order to: * Assess the quality of sea observations using original quality flags and reprocessing the data using global range check, spike removal, stuck value test and recursive statistic quality check; * return optimized daily and hourly time series of specific EOV (Essential Ocean Variables); * extract and aggregate in time data model at specific locations and depths; * evaluate OGCMs accuracy in terms of difference and absolute error. SOURCE is written in Python, an interpreted programming language highly adopted in the last decade because it is versatile, ease-to-use and fast to develop. SOURCE is developed and maintained as a module and it benefits from Python's open source utilities, such as: * Vectorized numerical data analysis (numPy, sciPy, ObsPy and pandas); * machine learning tools (scikit-learn); * hierarchical data storage (netCDF-4) (HDF5 based); * relational metadata storage using Structured Query Language (SQL) as management system. SOURCE is relocatable in the sense that it can be adapted to any basin worldwide, provided that the input data follow a specific standard format.
