If you're interested in contributing to the development of ClimaAtmos we want your help no matter how big or small a contribution you make! It's always great to have new people look at the code with fresh eyes: you will see errors that other developers have missed.

Let us know by opening an issue if you'd like to work on a new feature.

Here is the rule of thumb coding style and unicode usage restrictions.
