xclim is a Python library that enables computation of climate indicators over large, hetero- geneous data sets. It is built using xarray objects and operations, can seamlessly benefit from the parallelization handling provided by dask, and relies on community conventions for data formatting and metadata attributes. xclim is meant as a tool to facilitate both climate science research and the delivery of operational climate services and products. In addition to climate indicator calculations, xclim also includes utilities for bias correction and statistical adjustment, ensemble analytics, model diagnostics, data quality assurance, and metadata standards compliance.
