Sorry about that -

I particularly like the notebooks on water management and the time series
analysis. Just a remark though:
I would avoid using %pylab inline - it has some hideous side effects [1]
(and there was talk of it being removed entirely in future versions)
`%matplotlib inline
from matplotlib import pyplot as plt`
should be preferred.

Thank you for sharing!
