[IDV #VRY-580628]: Question re vertical velocity

> Hello,

Hi Dave,
    In the vertical cross section display, the vertical motion has already been 
exaggerated (not sure how much). If you want to do it yourself, you need to add 
a simple formula like w*10, and then using the Formula > Grids > Make flow 
vectors from u,v, and w. Make sure the unit in these variables are the same.
