Studying annual atmospheric pressure averages

You may have heard of global warming, which claims that temperature is rising steadily each year. Since pressure is another thermodynamic variable, we may expect pressure also to follow a trend. The complete code for this recipe is in the annual.py file in this book's code bundle:

import numpy as np import matplotlib.pyplot as plt data = np.load('cbk12.npy') # Multiply to get hPa values avgs = .1 * data[:,1] highs = .1 * data[:,2] lows = .1 * data[:,3] # Filter out 0 values avgs = np.ma.array(avgs, mask = avgs == 0) lows = np.ma.array(lows, mask = lows == 0) highs = np.ma.array(highs, mask = highs == 0) # Get years years = data[:,0]/10000 # Initialize annual stats arrays y_range = np.arange(1901, 2014) ...
