[python #QUY-577638]: Data Retrieval


So here's some example code downloading a single sounding for a particular site 
(OUN in this case) for one time (01.01.2016):

    from datetime import datetime
    from siphon.simplewebservice.wyoming import WyomingUpperAir

    station = 'OUN'
    dt = datetime(2016, 1, 1, 12)
    df = WyomingUpperAir.request_data(dt, station)
    print(df['pressure'], df['temperature'], df['dewpoint'], df['pw'])

This gets pressure, temperature, dewpoint (that's what's provided for a 
humidity measurement), and precipitable water (pw). If you need it for that 
many dates, you'll need to make many individual requests. If you go to their 
web interface:


You can request multiple days for a single site.

> Hello, I am doing my doctorate in the field of remote sensing at AtatÃrk 
> University. I need precipitation water vapor data obtained through rainsonde

> I checked the link below, but I could not understand the codes very much. 
> Could you please tell me how I can extract temperature, humidity, pressure
