nctoolkit is a Python package for the analysis and post-processing of netCDF files. It provides a simple, intuitive interface, and includes methods for common tasks such as subsetting, regridding, statistical analysis and plotting. The package is designed to be easy to use, and to require minimal code for performing common tasks. It is built on top of the Climate Data Operators (CDO) library (Schulzweida, 2022), which provides a powerful data model for working with multidimensional data. The core aim of the package is to provide over 80% of the typical data processing requirements for climate, marine and atmospheric scientists who work with netCDF data.
