MetPy Mondays #15 - Upper air data with Siphon

On this week's MetPy Monday, we're talking about the Siphon package. Why? As several users have noticed, the getupperair_data function is deprecated as of MetPy 0.6 and will be removed in MetPy 0.8. That functionality has been moved to our remote data access library (siphon) with an improved API. Learn how to use siphon in this week's video!

MetPy Mondays #14 - Adding a logo and timestamp

This week, we'll talk about some handy functions in MetPy that let you decorate your plots with the MetPy or Unidata logos. We'll also add time of creation timestamps to help you keep track of what's what in that pile of PNG files in your manuscript folder!

MetPy Mondays #13 - Temperature Units

MetPy Mondays #12 - Citing MetPy

When writing research papers, we all cite other papers that we read, datasets that we use, but do you cite the software you use? Just like papers, software can be cited if it was used in your research. Citing MetPy has never been easier! We have a Digital Object Identifier (DOI), prebuilt BibTeX entry, and AMS citation. Using the Crosscite tool you can also generate a citation in just about any format imaginable! You can also tell the software engineers how you use MetPy with our Say Thanks page.

MetPy Mondays #11 - Plotting GOES-16 Data with Widgets

Everyone has been really excited about exploring the incredibly high resolution GOES-16 imagery that is now available in an experimental capacity. We host some of this data on out THREDDS test server and it can be ingested with siphon and plotted in Python! In this week’s MetPy Monday we’ll go over how to use interactive widgets to select the region and channel to plot and produce images from the data.
