is a set of R
functions that ingests common radiosonde datafiles into R and
can create SKEW-T, log p diagrams and wind profile plots.
Radiosondes are a very common instrument in the atmospheric
sciences. Several thousand radiosondes are launched every day
by the World Meteorological Organization and they provide
data used by all the operational weather centers.
The SKEW-T, log p plot is the most common diagram to examine
radiosonde data and shows the relationship of the current state
of the atmosphere against families of curves that represent certain
