- DataSet.tmin(self, over='time', align='right')#
tmin: Calculate the temporal minimum of all variables.
Useful for: monthly minimum, annual/yearly minimum, seasonal minimum, daily minimum, daily climatology, monthly climatology, seasonal climatology
over (str or list) – Time periods to average over. Options are ‘year’, ‘month’, ‘day’. This operates in a similar way to the groupby method in pandas or the tidyverse in R, with over acting as the grouping.
align (str) – This determines whether the output time is at the left, centre or right hand side of the time window. Options are “left”, “centre” and “right”
If you want to calculate minimum over all time steps. Do the following:
If you want to calculate the minimum for each year in a dataset, do this:
If you want to calculate the minimum for each month in a dataset, do this:
If you want to calculate the minimum for each month in each year in a dataset, do this:
>>> ds.tmin(["year", "month"])
This method will also let you easily calculate climatologies. So, if you wanted to calculate a monthly climatological min, you would do this:
>>> ds.tmin( "month")
A daily climatological minimum would be the following:
>>> ds.tmin( "day")
