Re: [gembud] SFPARM : wind barb



Haldun,

The GEMPAK convention is a full barb for 10 Units.
By plotting as knots, a full barb of 10 is approximately
5 m/s (eg 5.144 m/s, conversion is 1.944 kts = 1 m/s) which
is the convention that most show.

hi all,
at sfmap: I display surface observations. I am trying to figure out how
to display winds such that there will be a full barb for every 5 m/s
any ideas?
