Not sure if this question is on topic but I want to be able to automate the download of data from this site using a script- http://www.esrl.noaa.gov/psd/data/gridded/data.ncep.reanalysis.pressure.html
Currently I can go here and manually download by clicking the variable that I want (such as surface pressure, time of day that I want the data , subset for the region and the pressure level(such as 500 hPa etc).
The same can be accomplished by harcoding the value of file that I want to download in a script. I want to automate this process with some intelligence using a script. I want to pass as input the following
a) type of variable that i want to download such as surface pressure or temperature
b) time i.e data corresponds to which day
c) latitude /longitude of the subset that I want to download
d) pressure level( 500 hPa, 850 hPa etc).
These four variables will be sent each time for each HTTP download request.
Is that possible ?
