Optional requirement

  • netCDF4, if you want to be able to export the data into netCDF files.
  • CoTeDe, if you want to quality control your data with custom or pre-set group of checks.

Installing Seabird

Virtual Environments

You don’t need to, but I strongly recommend to use virtualenv or conda.

Using pip

Currently, the most convenient way to install is with pip, by running in the terminal:

pip install seabird

If you don’t have pip installed, you’ll need to install pip first.


To install with netCDF support:

pip install seabird[CDF]

To install with Quality Control support:

pip install seabird[QC]
