SWAMPE is a 2D shallow-water general circulation model designed for simulating exoplanet atmospheres. SWAMPE is a fully in Python implementation of a spectral algorithm described in Hack and Jakob (1992) and previously available only in Fortran.
SWAMPE’s features currently include:
Exoplanet atmosphere simulations that can be run on your laptop.
Tuned for synchronously rotating hot Jupiters and sub-Neptunes.
Can be easily adapted to model a variety of substellar objects.
This public release contains tutorials for running atmospheric simulations, working with SWAMPE output, and plotting.
SWAMPE is available under the BSD 3-Clause License.
To report a bug or request a new feature, please open a new issue.
If you would like to get more actively involved in SWAMPE development, you are invited to get in touch ek672-at-cornell-dot-edu, and I will be happy to help you understand the codebase as you work on your contribution.
