Unveiling Atmospheric Stability: Exploring CAPE Calculation for Accurate Radiosounding Analysis

Understanding CAPE Calculation in Radiosounding and Earth Science Introduction to CAPE In the field of meteorology and atmospheric science, Convective Available Potential Energy (CAPE) is a critical parameter used to assess the potential for atmospheric instability and the likelihood of thunderstorm development. CAPE plays an important role in weather forecasting, helping meteorologists predict severe weather

Unlocking the Secrets of Earth’s Atmosphere: Advancements in High Vertical Resolution Radiosounding Data

Getting Started Atmospheric sounding, also known as radiosounding, is a fundamental technique used in Earth science to study the vertical profile of the atmosphere. It involves the measurement of various atmospheric parameters such as temperature, humidity, pressure and wind speed at different altitudes. These measurements provide valuable insights into the structure and dynamics of the

Extreme temperatures at the stratopause: record-breaking highs and lows revealed through radiosounding

The stratopause is a layer of the Earth’s atmosphere that separates the stratosphere from the mesosphere. It is located at an altitude of about 50-55 km (31-34 miles) above the Earth’s surface. The temperature at the stratopause is of great interest to scientists because it plays an important role in the dynamics of the upper
