Abstract / Description of output

VarPy is an open-source toolbox which provides a Python framework for analysing volcanology and rock physics data. It provides several functions, which allow users to define their own workflows to develop models, analyses and visualisa- tions. The goal of the VarPy library is to accelerate the uptake of computational methods by researchers in volcanology and rock physics. It does this via two mechanisms:
• supplying a library of ready-made functions that are generally useful; and
• providing a context for creating, sharing and comparing additional functions.
We anticipate two groups of VarPy users:
• the majority who use functions already written and in the library; they will predominantly arrange to use sequences of these functions with their own parameter- isations; and
• contributors, who, as well as using provided functions, also want to write additional functions for their own use or to add to the library.
