Code developed by our group

Python olm package (formerly WaterChem)| documentation | download at github

This is a collection of Python code for calculations related to water chemistry analysis, with a focus on common calculations in carbonate settings. The code currently includes capabilities for calculating equilibrium chemistry with respect to calcite as well as calcite dissolution rates according to the PWP Equation. In addition, there is a module that enables automated downloading of USGS water quality and discharge data, as well as processing this data through PHREEQC. The package requires numpy and scipy.

This is a preliminary release of this package, which is undergoing significant continued development. Soon additional capabilities for reading and processing data from data loggers will be added, as well as an improved interface for analysis and plotting.
