As part of a Stream Ecology course I took in Winter 2013 (BIO 571 at Oakland University, taught by Prof. Scott Tiegs), I wrote a little paper on data processing and analysis issues that arise with the use of stream temperature digital data loggers. As part of this project, I started messing around with using Python to process the log files created by these devices. I think it would be fun to create a Python based toolkit for this task. For now, here are links to the paper and a companion website illustrating the use of Python for some basic analysis of stream temperature data logs.
The website illustrates the use of Python for processing stream temperature log files.
