The Station Exchange Format (SEF)ΒΆ


This format is still under active development. Incompatible changes are likely.

This is a file format specification and Python API for newly-digitised historical weather observations. It has been produced to suport the work of the Copernicus Data Rescue Service in particular to allow people rescuing observations to present them for widespread use in a simple but standard format.

This format is for land observations from fixed stations. Marine observations, and moving observing platforms, should use the IMMA format instead.
