4. Python Wrappers

This chapter provides a description of each supported Python wrapper in METplus Wrappers. A wrapper is generally a Python script that encapsulates the behavior of a corresponding MET tool. Each of these sections can be added to the PROCESS_LIST configuration list variable. The METplus Configuration section of each wrapper section below lists the METplus Wrappers configuration variables that are specific to that wrapper organized by config file section. You can find more information about each item in the METplus Configuration Glossary. The MET Configuration section of each wrapper (if applicable) displays the wrapped MET configuration file that utilizes environment variables to override settings. These sections also contain a list of environment variables that are referenced in the wrapped MET configuration files and a table to show which METplus configuration variables are used to set them and which MET configuration variables they override.

4.2. CyclonePlotter

4.2.1. Description

This wrapper does not have a corresponding MET tool but instead wraps the logic necessary to create plots of cyclone tracks. Currently only the output from the MET tc-pairs tool can be plotted. If used on an internet-limited system, additional dependencies may apply. See Software Installation for details.

4.4. Example

4.4.1. Description

Used to demonstrate how the METplus wrappers handle looping and building commands.

4.4.2. Configuration

4.5. ExtractTiles

4.5.1. Description

The ExtractTiles wrapper is used to regrid and extract subregions from paired tropical cyclone tracks generated with TCStat, or from cluster object centroids generated with MODE Time Domain (MTD). Unlike the other wrappers, the extract_tiles_wrapper does not correspond to a specific MET tool. It reads track information to determine the lat/lon positions of the paired track data. This information is then used to create tiles of subregions. The ExtractTiles wrapper creates a 2n degree x 2m degree grid/tile with each storm located at the center.

4.5.2. METplus Configuration

The following should be set in the METplus configuration file to define the dimensions and density of the tiles comprising the subregion:

4.7. GenVxMask

4.7.1. Description

Used to configure the MET tool GenVxMask to define and generate masking regions.

4.7.2. Configuration

4.8. GFDLTracker

4.8.1. Description

Used to call the GFDL Tracker applications to objectively analyze forecast data to provide an estimate of the vortex center position (latitude and longitude), and track the storm for the duration of the forecast. The wrapper copies files and uses symbolic links to ensure that input files are named and located in the correct place so that the tracker can read them. The wrapper also generates index files and other inputs that are required to run the tool and substitutes values into template configuration files that are read by the tracker. Relevant output files are renamed based on user configuration. See GFDL Tracker for more information.

4.8.2. METplus Configuration

4.8.3. NML Configuration

Below is the NML template configuration file used for this wrapper. The wrapper substitutes values from the METplus configuration file into this configuration file. While it may appear that environment variables are used in the NML template file, they are not actually environment variables. The wrapper searches for these strings and substitutes the values as appropriate.

4.27. TCMPRPlotter

4.27.1. Description

The TCMPRPlotter wrapper is a Python script that wraps the R script plot_tcmpr.R. This script is useful for plotting the calculated statistics for the output from the MET-TC tools. This script, and other R scripts are included in the MET installation. Please refer to the MET User’s Guide for usage information.

4.27.2. METplus Configuration

The following are TCMPR flags, if set to ‘no’, then don’t set flag, if set to ‘yes’, then set the flag

4.28. TCPairs

4.28.1. Description

The TCPairs wrapper encapsulates the behavior of the MET tc_pairs tool. The wrapper accepts Adeck and Bdeck (Best track) cyclone track data in extra tropical cyclone format (such as the data used by sample data provided in the METplus tutorial), or ATCF formatted track data. If data is in an extra tropical cyclone (non-ATCF) format, the data is reformatted into an ATCF format that is recognized by MET.

4.28.2. METplus Configuration

4.28.3. MET Configuration

Below is the wrapped MET configuration file used for this wrapper. Environment variables are used to control entries in this configuration file. The default value for each environment variable is obtained from (except where noted below):

4.31. UserScript

4.31.1. Description

Used to generate user-defined commands to run in the process list. Commands can be run once, run once for each runtime (init/valid/lead combination) or once for init, valid, or lead only. The command to run is specified with the USER_SCRIPT_COMMAND variable. The command should include a script or executable and any desired arguments. The variable support filename template substitution to send information like the current initialization or forecast lead time. See Runtime Frequency for more information on how the value of USER_SCRIPT_RUNTIME_FREQ can control how the commands are called. Optionally, file paths can be defined with filename templates to generate a file list text file that contains all existing file paths that correspond to the appropriate runtime frequency for the current run time. The path to the file list text files are set as environment variables that can be referenced inside the user-defined script to obtain a list of the files that should be processed. See USER_SCRIPT_INPUT_TEMPLATE for more information.
