esmf_regrid.experimental.unstructured_regrid module#

Provides esmpy representations of UGRID meshes.

class esmf_regrid.experimental.unstructured_regrid.MeshInfo(node_coords, face_node_connectivity, node_start_index, elem_start_index=0, areas=None, mask=None, elem_coords=None, location='face')[source]#

Bases: SDO

Class for handling unstructured meshes.

This class holds information about Meshes in a form similar to UGRID. It contains methods for translating this information into esmpy objects. In particular, there are methods for representing as an esmpy.api.mesh.Mesh and as an esmpy.api.field.Field containing that Mesh. This esmpy Field is designed to contain enough information for area weighted regridding and may be inappropriate for other esmpy regridding schemes.

Create a MeshInfo object describing a UGRID-like mesh.

  • node_coords (ArrayLike) – An Nx2 array describing the location of the nodes of the mesh. node_coords[:,0] describes the longitudes in degrees and node_coords[:,1] describes the latitudes in degrees.

  • face_node_connectivity (ArrayLike) – A masked array describing the face node connectivity of the mesh. The unmasked points of face_node_connectivity[i] describe which nodes are connected to the i’th face.

  • node_start_index (int) – A value which, appearing in the face_node_connectivity array, indicates the first node in the node_coords array. UGRID supports both 0 based and 1 based indexing, so both must be accounted for here:

  • elem_start_index (int, default=0) – Describes what index should be considered by esmpy to be the start index for describing its elements. This makes no difference to the regridding calculation and will only affect the intermediate esmpy objects, should the user need access to them.

  • areas (ArrayLike, optional) – Array describing the areas associated with each face. If None, then esmpy will use its own calculated areas.

  • mask (ArrayLike, optional) – Array describing which elements esmpy will ignore.

  • elem_coords (ArrayLike, optional) – An Nx2 array describing the location of the face centers of the mesh. elem_coords[:,0] describes the longitudes in degrees and elem_coords[:,1] describes the latitudes in degrees.

  • location (str, default="face") – Either “face” or “node”. Describes the location for data on the mesh.
