Description

Function for plotting a customized version of the Skew-T diagram. Please note that drawing Skew-T may require increasing size or modifying aspect ratio of plotting window in order to provide readable results.

Arguments

ptop

Pressure top level to be used for plotting diagram. Valid options: 200, 150, 100 (default) and 50 hPa

isoterms_col

color to be used for drawing dry isoterms

temp_stripes

logical, whether to draw color stripes for isotherms

mixing_ratio_col

color to be used for drawing mixing ratio isolines and labels. If set to NA or empty string isolines are not drawn

dry_adiabats_col

color to be used for drawing dry adiabats. If set to NA or not provided drawing lines skipped

moist_adiabats_col

color to be used for drawing moist adiabats. If set to NA or not provided drawing lines skipped

deg45

whether to preserve 45 degrees for diagonal isolines on Skew-T diagram regardless ploting window aspect ratio. [logical, default: FALSE]

isotherm0

whether to deliminate 0 degree Celsius isother [logical, default: TRUE]

close_par

if plot will be modified in next steps storing par settings is needed. This logical argument is turned on by default. If you want to modify Skew-T plot in next step set it to FALSE

...

additional (mostly graphical) parameters to be passed

Value

Draws a Skew-T log-p diagram
