Notes: Viewer RAOBCORE 2.0

  • Station : WMO radiosonde station number (not all the stations ara available for all the archives)
  • Varibale;
  • Pressure level [hPa];
  • Type: observation, biascorrection (if available), FirstGuess departures (if available) and Analysis departures ( if available); 
  • Smooth: running mean over the time serie;
  • Experiment: only Control is available;
  • Data from: in this menu are shown all the possible soure of data we are using:
    • Stations_ERA_INTERIM: data from ERA_INTERIM (observations and departures);
    • Stations_ERA_40: data from ERA_40 (obseravtiona and departures);
    • Stations_CHUAN_montly: monthly data from the CHUAN archive (observations from CHUAN);
    • Stations_CHUAN_daily: daily data from the CHUAN archive (observation from CHUAN, Analysis departures from 20CR);
    • 20CR: recoverd (only in presence of observation) time series from the 20CR interpolated at the station latitude and longitude;
    • ERA_40: recoverd (only in presence of observation) time series from ERA_40 interpolated at the station latitude and longitude;
    • long_20CR: recoverd time series (covers all the 20CR length) from the 20CR interpolated at the station latitude and longitude;
    • MERGED_archive: it contains merged obseravtions data from ERA_INTERIM, ERA_40 and CHUAN; the analysis departures are from 20CR.
  • Adjustment_Method: only Unadjusted is now available;
  • Version: only v2.0 is available;
  • Long_Time: 
    • 00h: data at Midnight;
    • 12h: data at Noon;
    • 00h - 12h: difference between Midnight  and Noon;
  • PlotSetting:
    • Jump_Missing: if there is a missind value, nothing is plotted;
    • Linear_Connection: if there is a missing value, a linear connection between the last available and the new available will be plotted;
  • Metadata: shows (if available) the metadata for the selected station; 
  • Overplot: allows plotting many time series on the same frame;
  • Tooltip: gives hints about the different menus;
  • Autorefresh: at each selection it tries to plot the current setting;
  • Range: scaled for the time axis;
  • Delete Last: deletes the last plot form the frame;
  • Delete All : deletes all the plots from the frame;

In order to zoom in: select with a mouse and drag the area that you would like to inspect. It will be magnified in the main frame. 

 

Suggested stations for a easy start :

  • Temperature:

Station: 010393, Merged archive, presure 1000 or 850 hPa -> long time series back to 1905

Station: 004018, Merged archive, pressure 850 hPa -> continue time serie back to 1946;

 

  • U and V Wind component:

Station: 016716, Merged archive, pressure 200 hPa, Type: Observations and Analysis depertures -> big shift (better visible with smooth bigger than 100);

  •  Wind Speed:

Station: 016716, Merged archive, pressure 200 hPa, Type: Observations and Analysis depertures -> big shift (better visible with smooth bigger than 100)
