Webinar: Introduction to Python scripting for water modellers

Basic data structures and importing modules

This webinar is a crash course in Python syntax with a focus on hydrology and hydraulic applications. At the completion, students will have an understanding of basic Python syntax and how to write a script that imports stream discharge data from a directory, summarizes time series, and then calculates and plots flow exceedance curves.
