Critique

Critique

  • Much training required

  • Difficult to compare quickly

  • Difficult to use for presentation to novice students

  • Easy to distribute

  • Complexity might aid understanding


Previous work

Previous Work

  • Only modifications to Skew-T

  • Haeger: Vertical ocean profiles


Atmospheric sounding visualization

Proposed solution

Proposed Solution

  • Derive variables

  • Display on an annotated bar plot


Atmospheric sounding visualization

Use

  • 14-17 year olds that have just completed an introduction to meteorology class


Implementation details

Implementation Details

  • Data source: http://weather.uwyo.edu/upperair/sounding.html

  • Java/swing in Eclipse


Outstanding issues

Outstanding Issues
