The Clark County Department of Air Quality (DAQ) upper-air monitoring station includes a Radiometrics (http://radiometrics.com/ ) MP-3000A Temperature, Humidity and Liquid Water Profiler that produces vertical profiles of atmospheric temperature and humidity, which in turn are processed by the RAOB Universal RAwinsonde Observation Program (http://www.raob.com/ ) to create hourly skew-T / log-P thermodynamic diagrams with additional atmospheric characteristics. The station also has a Radiometrics Raptor DBS-BL upgrade to the LAP-3000 radar wind profiler formerly manufactured by Vaisala Group. With support from T&B Systems , the vertical wind profile data are also shown on the RAOB imagery producing the hourly plot shown above. The Event and Time features allow choosing a time period or the daily time-lapse animation to view.
