Python tools to rotate grid of UM output

Description

Hi,

I am using UM on a limited-area domain, so runs are done in rotated pole coordinate system.
Can you please recommend a Python package/script that handles the rotated grid of the UM output, namely rotates the grid back to the 'normal' (geographical) coordinates? I know that, for example, Cartopy can plot the rotated-grid fields, but I would like to do some post-processing and that requires the fields to be rotated to the 'normal' grid.

What is the best way to do it in Python?

Cheers,
Denis

Hi Denis,

I see you got some answers to this via the python mailing list at Reading. Just for the benefit of others, it was recommended that you take a look at the Iris package developed by the Met Office:
