You are going to be analyzing Meteograms, which were introduced in Lab Investigation 5A, for a local city of your choice.

Goal: You are going to be analyzing Meteograms, which were introduced in Lab Investigation 5A, for a local city of your choice. . You are looking at several days of data to find ONE day in a city near you in which a front passed (Warm or Cold Front) within the 24 hours plotted. Copy the meteogram for the day you believe a front passed into your discussion board and explain your proof that this was a front and what type. You must include at least two of the four parameters plotted in a meteogram in your response. Additionally you will be evaluating another's analysis of their meteogram by commenting on your agreement of their frontal analysis.

The rules and order of operations:

1. Go to can be found on weblinks page, Did you know that the Plymouth State College our Neighbor in NH has one of the best meteorology programs in the US?)

2. Once there click on the word "map" highlighted in blue to find a local city with data and save that station identifier.

3. Go back to the main Plymouth page and plug in the station identifier where it says station ID and in the output area leave it as a graphical summary.

4. Push "click here to view summary" and your meteogram for the last 24 hours for that city will appear!

5. It is best to save this meteogram onto your computer (make sure to change the file name so you can find it again) in the event that there is no front and you have to go back another day you can compare data for a better analysis. By saving the image you can also easily insert it directly into the discussion page. To insert an image into the discussion page go to the top left of your discussion box and on the bottom row there is an attach image icon - just click that and if you saved it on your computer it is nice and easy.

6. Analyze the meteogram and write out a detailed explanation as to why you think there was a front. It is easiest to do thi below the meteogram. You must include at least two parameters from the meteogram as proof, explaining each with detail, and then detail what type of front (warm or cold, as occluded will be tough to see at this stage). Clearly to do thi you will need to copy the meteogram into the discussion page for us all to see.

7. You must also go in and review/analyze one other person's meteogram. There you need to comment on if you agree, why, and how you might interpret the data differently. YOU MAY NOT INTERPRET A METEOGRAM FROM THE SAME LOCATION OR THE SAME DAY! Meaning you could interpret someone's data from Pease Air Force Base (which is what I have posted below for you) if you also did that location but it would need to be from a different day or it could be the same day but needs to be a totally different location. Ideally both would be different. Each meteogram can only be commented on twice! If there is one with a comment already please comment on the meteogram that has yet to be evaluated. If you are the third to evaluate a meteogram you will not get credit for that work.

8. Your grade will be a combination of both your analysis of your meteogram and your review of another person's work. The analysis of someone's work must be respectful and constructive and if either is not adhered to, by my discretion and judgment, then you will automatically receive a zero for all the work. You are evaluating others work to help identify new ways of looking at data not to prove someone wrong. For instance I always went to wind direction when looking at meteograms but a friend used to go straight to temperature as his number one analysis tool. We found that neither of us was right 100% of the time using our preferred method so we started sharing the evaluation with me looking at the meteograms from my perspective and sharing that analysis and then he would come in with his analysis. Together we really nailed them!!!!
