Reproducibility and replicability in analyzing data is one of the main requirements for the advancement of scientific fields that rely heavily on computational data analysis, such as atmospheric science. However, there are very few research activities that field in Indonesia that emphasize the principle of transparency of codes and data in the dissemination of the results. This issue is a major challenge for the Indonesian scientific community to verify the output of research activities from their peers. One common obstacle to the reproducibility of data-driven research is the portability issue of the computing environment used to reproduce the results. Therefore, in this article, we would like to offer a solution through Debian-based dockerized Jupyter Notebook that have been installed with several Python libraries that are often used in atmospheric science research. Through this containerized computing environment, we expect to overcome the portability and dependency constraints that often faced by atmospheric scientists and also to encourage the growth of research ecosystem in Indonesia through an open and replicable environment.
