Usage

1
sounding_export(pressure, altitude, temp, dpt, wd, ws)

Arguments

pressure

pressure [hPa]

altitude

altitude [m] (can be above sea level or above ground level as function always consider first level as surface, i.e h = 0 m) altitude [meters]

temp

temperature [degree Celsius]

dpt

dew point temperature [degree Celsius]

wd

wind direction [azimuth in degrees]

ws

wind speed [knots]

Value

Data frame of computed values for visualizing parcel trajectories

  1. pressure pressure [hPa]

  2. altitude altitude [m]

  3. temp temperature [degree Celsius]

  4. tempV virtual temperature [degree Celsius]

  5. dpt dew point temperature [degree Celsius]

  6. wd wind direction [azimuth in degrees]

  7. ws wind speed [knots]

  8. MU temperature for most unstable CAPE trajectory [degree Celsius]

  9. SB temperature for surface based CAPE trajectory [degree Celsius]

  10. ML temperature for mixed layer CAPE trajectory [degree Celsius]
