HRID diagnostic package

glasnovic+&+cirus.dhz.hr, bajic+&+cirus.dhz.hr

The HRID (High Resolution Isentropic Diagnosis) diagnostic package presents the group of numerical routines and objective diagnostic methods in isentropic coordinates. Current version of this application consists of a number of composite high resolution vertical time cross-sections. Combination of superimposed elementary and derived thermodynamic and stability parameters calculated in certain arbitrarily chosen interval gives very detailed insight into the vertical atmospheric structure and its time changes at some particular locality. It works: - either at direct NWP model output on further dynamical adaptation, local post-processing and objective interpretation having quite prognostic meaning; or by using radiosonde measurements as input data to make special diagnostic studies. Combined approach by applying both the PSEUDOTEMP messages and TEMP reports enables forecast verification against observation.
