RadioSonde: Tools for plotting skew-T diagrams and wind profiles

Share:

RadioSonde is a collection of programs for reading and plotting SKEW-T,log p diagrams and wind profiles for data collected by radiosondes (the typical weather balloon-borne instrument), which we will call "flights", "sondes", or "profiles" throughout the associated documentation. The raw data files are in a common format that has a header followed by specific variables. Use "help(ExampleSonde)" for the full explanation of the data files.
