pyarts is the Python interface for the Atmospheric Radiative Transfer Simulator (ARTS). It provides

  • an interactive interface to the ARTS engine for running radiative transfer simulations,

  • Python implementations of many ARTS built-in types for the manipulation of input data and the evaluation simulation results.


Pre-compiled binaries

Pre-compiled binaries of the ARTS interface including the ARTS engine for performing RT simulations can be installed from the Python Package Index (PyPI):

pip install pyarts

Building from source

If you build ARTS from source, then the Python interface will be installed automatically.

Getting started

A basic introduction on how to use the ARTS interface is provided in the Getting started section.
