January 28 (Sat) 12:00pm The Best Kept Secret in Aviation

Event Date: 
Saturday, January 28, 2017 - 12:00pm to 2:00pm

We can observe the ceilings and look at satellite images for cloud tops, but what’s happening in between. The Skew T Log P diagram is one of the best kept secrets in aviation.

Now you can view the vertical profile of the atmosphere including its stability based on weather modeling from a plethora of weather observations including soundings, radar, weather stations, satellites and aircraft. You no longer need to guess the cloud layers and freezing levels. You can now review direct soundings and interpolated models of the vertical atmospheric profiles with a high degree of reliability.

Join Dave Kramer, weather enthusiast, private pilot and ground instructor for a seminar on how to interpret Skew T Log P diagrams to further enhance your awareness of the weather around you.
