UPPER-AIR ANALYSIS

OVERVIEW 

As an AG 3, you have been exposed to upper- air charts and their analysis. Some AG 3s have plotted them, displayed them, and possibly even sketched contours on them. To further your understanding of these charts, we will discuss those elements which go into their makeup and analysis.

OUTLINE

Evaluation of data

Contour (isoheight) analysis

Isotherm analysis Wind-temperature relationship

Frontal analysis

Isotach analysis

Jet stream analysis

Tropopause analysis

Supplementary upper-air analysis

UPPER-AIR ANALYSIS 

The upper-air analyst is responsible for recognizing and resolving erroneous reports; ex-trapolating upper-air data from surface reports; drawing isopleths for various elements such as heights, temperatures, wind speeds, etc.; deriv-ing upper-air information from satellite pictures; and relating the various levels analyzed.

Learning Objective: Determine the elements used in the preparation and analysis of upper-air charts.
