[McIDAS #MFA-445809]: Cross section from multiple NetCDF radiosonde files

Hi John,

> I'm a new user of McIDAS (under openSUSE 11.2, 64-bit) and somewhat
> familiar with using RAOB under windows to create cross sections from
> individual (FSL format) radiosonde sounding files.
> I've saved five NetCDF (radiosonde network) sounding files and have no
> problem to get the skew-T diagram in McIDAS, but haven't discovered how
> to create a cross section and display (e.g.) potential temperature -- it
> seems like perhaps I need a different type of input file.
> I haven't succeeded to find relevant tips in software documentation or
> support archives. Thanks for any suggestions. John Wilson.

The first question is if you are using McIDAS-X or McIDAS-V (there is a
BIG difference)?  I assume that you are using McIDAS-V since McIDAS-X
does not support use of netCDF files for upper air storage/use.
If you are using McIDAS-V I will likely had this over to our IDV
folks as they should be able to help you (McIDAS-V is built on top
of our IDV package (and that is built on top of VisAD)).
