Mastering the Skew-T Diagram Preview

Added on: February 20, 2009        Duration: 12 minutes

Thermodynamic diagrams such as the Skew-T log (p) are one of the best kept secrets in aviation. Based on data from radiosondes (weather balloons), they can be used to depict actual environmental temperature and actual environmental dewpoint as a function of pressure or altitude. They can also be used to depict the forecast environmental temperature and dewpoint based on output from a weather prediction model. In this preview you will learn...
