PyNIO 1.5.5-foss-2018b-Python-3.6.6

Deprecated: Use of this version of PyNIO is deprecated. More information on our Applications Support and Retention Policy.

PyNIO is a Python package that allows read and/or write access to a variety of data formats using an interface modeled on netCDF. PyNIO is composed of a C library called libnio along with a Python module based on and with an interface similar to the Scientific.IO.NetCDF module written by Konrad Hinsen. The C library contains the same data I/O code used in NCL, a scripting language developed for analysis and visualization of geo-scientific data

Accessing PyNIO 1.5.5-foss-2018b-Python-3.6.6

To load the module for PyNIO 1.5.5-foss-2018b-Python-3.6.6 please use this command on the BEAR systems (BlueBEAR, BEARCloud VMs, and CaStLeS VMs):

module load PyNIO/1.5.5-foss-2018b-Python-3.6.6

BEAR Apps Version




The listed architectures consist of two part: OS-CPU.

  • BlueBEAR: The OS used on BlueBEAR is represented by EL and there are several different processor (CPU) types available on BlueBEAR. More information about the processor types on BlueBEAR is available on the BlueBEAR Job Submission page.
  • BEAR and CaStLeS Cloud VMs: These VMs can have one of two OSes. Those with access to a BEAR Cloud or CaStLeS VM should check that the listed architectures for an application include the OS of VM being used. The VMs, irrespective of OS, will use the haswell CPU type.
