Performing Analysis Of Meteorological Data


The dataset has hourly temperature recorded for last 10 years starting from 2006–04–01 00:00:00.000 +0200 to 2016–09–09 23:00:00.000 +0200. It corresponds to Finland, a country in the Northern Europe.


Transform the raw data into information and then convert it into knowledge. By -

  • Perform data cleaning,
  • Perform analysis for testing the given Null Hypothesis (H0) &
  • Write a descriptive blog with relevant visualizations to prove your point.

Null Hypothesis (H0)

“Has the apparent temperature & humidity compared monthly across 10 years of the data, indicate an increase due to Global warming.”

Implementation -

Step 1: Importing the Necessary Libraries & Data

Step 2: Data cleaning

2.1 Find all Missing values from the Dataset.

Step 3: Resample data from hourly to month wise

The data in the dataset is hourly values, we resample the entire dataset to monthly values to meet our analysis requirements.

Step 4: Analysis plots of temperature & humidity over the range of years in the dataset

4.1 Variation in apparent temperature & humidity with time (in years)

Conclusion -

  • No change in average humidity observable.
  • Thus we can see decrease in Apparent Temperature in the year 2008 and slight increase in 2009 and then dropping severly in 2010 and 2011 with a slight increase in 2012 further we see significant increase till 2015 and again its starts dropping from 2016 onwards.
  • Global warming is no doubt deteriorating the climate and is affecting various parameters of the environment. Hence from this analysis we infer that there are either sharp rise in temperatures or sharp falls over the 10 yrs.
  • According to Null Hypothesis (H0) both increases due to Global Warming is proven wrong here, and thus null hypothesis failed.
  • “I am thankful to mentors at for providing awesome problem statements and giving many of us a Coding Internship Experience. Thank you".
