Hi dude,I am sending you the final version of the Lab report.Text me if you need additional explanations :)
Surface Weather Maps: Isoplething and Interpretation
We have all seen the classic surface weather map with red L’s and blue H’s representing
low and high pressure respectively with fronts plotted to show location and direction of
movement. These surface weather maps provide the reader with a quick, easy way to interpret
regional or national weather. Isoplething is the process of creating lines of equal value, like
contouring on topographic maps, see Chapter 1 Essentials of Meteorology: An Invitation to the
Atmosphere for a review of contouring. On surface weather maps, we create isobars, lines of
equal pressure. Isobars allow us to determine locations of high and low pressure. The standard
convention is to plot isobars every 4mb, for instance, lines would be plotted at 996 mb, 1000 mb,
1004 mb, 1008 mb and so on up or down depending on the daily values. This laboratory
assignment will have you access surface weather plots in real time and conduct the analysis....
