  "description": "<p>RockHound is a Python library to download geophysical models and datasets (PREM, CRUST1.0, ETOPO1) and load them into Python data structures (pandas, numpy, xarray).</p>\n\n<p>Many of these models use non-conventional file formats or can be tricky to find on the internet. RockHound knows how to download them if you don&#39;t already have them locally, read the file format, and return a nicely formatted data structure. Under the hood, it uses <a href=\"\">Pooch</a> to manage the downloads.</p>",
