The Profiler Time/Height display shows profiler winds at all levels above one station, for one or more times. This is the conventional display of profiler data.
Winds are shown with the meteorological wind barb symbol. The location of the barb on the plot shows wind observation time, and height above mean sea level; the barb's orientation gives wind direction in a map view sense (up is north; right is east).
If necessary, select Profiler data and times as described in Loading Profiler Data.
