Reader

An abstract reader. Implementors provide a method to read data and specify how it is interpolated.

class opendrift.readers.reader_current_from_track.Reader(obslon, obslat, obstime, obsfile=None, wind_east=0, wind_north=0, windreader=None, wind_factor=0.018, name=None)[source]

Bases: opendrift.readers.basereader.BaseReader, opendrift.readers.basereader.ContinuousReader

An abstract reader. Implementors provide a method to read data and specify how it is interpolated.

This class inherits variables.Variables which inherits variables.ReaderDomain. ReaderDomain is responsible for the extent and domain of the reader, including checking for out-of-bounds and projection conversion. Variables is responsible for returning interpolated data at the requests positions or profiles. Apart from coercing the returned data into the right type for opendrift.models.basemodel, it defines the abstract interface to variables.Variables._get_variables_interpolated_() which reader-implementations must provide (_usually_ through one of the main reader-types, see: opendrift.readers).

Reader which statistically extrapolate current forcing. It uses the residual track obtained by subtracting the wind forcing component from the past observed motion of a particle.

variables = ['x_sea_water_velocity', 'y_sea_water_velocity']
get_variables(self, requested_variables, time=None, x=None, y=None, z=None)[source]

Obtain and return values of the requested variables at all positions (x, y, z) closest to given time.

Returns:

Dictionary with arrays of length len(x) with values at exact positions x, y and z.
