Today, I helped launch another upper air sounding, the 6/25/16 0Z balloon. I also spent some time going through the UCAR Skew-T/log-P plot training module.
While calculating some of the numerous quantities that exist from data on this chart, it dawned on me- the Skew-T/log-P plot is to meteorologists as the periodic table is to chemists. So much data is so well organized, it’s unbelievable that it all comes together so well.
I will gradually update my glossary to include some of these quantities.
Thank you for reading my post.
