  • Trenberth_1000-500.txt
  • (image)
      Plots 1000-500 mb thickness, 1000-500 mb Thermal Wind, and 700 mb absolute vorticity. Regions of 700 mb vorticity advection by the Thermal Wind indicate rising motion in the layer. (see this link for the Trenberth Formulation)
  • isenUS.txt
  • (image)
      Plots winds along isentropic surfaces for the entire United States with contours of pressure and relative humidity. Isentropic surfaces range from 285 K to 320 K in 5 K intervals.
  • isentropic_mr.txt
  • (image)
      Plots winds along isentropic surfaces for the Southern Plains with contours of pressure and mixing ratio. Isentropic surfaces range from 285 K to 320 K in 5 K intervals.
  • isentropic_rh.txt
  • (image)
      Plots winds along isentropic surfaces for the Southern Plains with contours of pressure and relative humidity. Isentropic surfaces range from 285 K to 320 K in 5 K intervals.
  • ounthta.txt
  • (image)
      Plots vertical profiles of potential temperature and equivalent potential temperature along with a vertical wind profile.
  • 500mbAnalysis.txt
  • (image)
      Plots 500 mb height, relative humidities greater than 70%, and RAOB upper air numbers. The white background of the GIF image is made transparent with imagemagick and then overlayed onto a blank, colored background image. (still has bugs)
