This resource includes two Jupyter Notebooks as a quick start tutorial for the NWM data component of the PyMT modeling framework (https://pymt.readthedocs.io/en/latest/).

The nwm Python package provides a set of functions that allows downloading of the National Water Model (NWM https://water.noaa.gov/about/nwm) datasets for data analysis and visualization. These functions were implemented using the API of the HydroShare National Water Model Web App (https://hs-apps.hydroshare.org/apps/nwm-forecasts/). The nwm package also includes a Basic Model Interface (BMI https://bmi.readthedocs.io/en/latest/) that can be used for data/model coupling under the PyMT modeling framework.

The pymt_nwm Python package uses the BMI of the nwm package to convert it into a reusable, plug-and-play data component for PyMT modeling framework. This allows the National Water Model datasets to be easily coupled with other datasets or models that expose a BMI.

HydroShare users can test and run the two Jupyter Notebooks (nwm.ipynb, pymt_nwm.ipynb) directly through the "CUAHSI JupyterHub" web app with the following steps:
- click on the "Open with" button. (on the top right corner of the page)
- select "CUAHSI JupyterHub". (Need to join the CUAHSI JupyterHub group for the first time web app user.)
- select "CSDMS Workbench" server option. (Make sure to select the right server option.)

If there is have any suggestion to improve the current functions of the nwm package, please create a github issue at https://github.com/gantian127/nwm/issues
