Multicore GRIB processing with xarray

In today's post, we're going to use xarray multicore capabilities to access a fairly large weather dataset using Python. To illustrate our purpose, we'll look at 15 years of solar radiations provided by the ECMWF. It takes a while to retrieve such a large dataset from the ECMWF, so I'll just give a direct link to a file with 15 years of data [...]
