PROPHET Field Project

The PROPHET project is operating a single ISS at the University of Michigan Biological Station near Pellston, Michigan. Operations began around July 1, 2000 and will end August 15, 2000.

Thanks to Steve Cohn, we have many pictures from the site taken during setup:

Plot Summaries

There are plot summaries for each of the categories of realtime plots. Each summary is a table of thumbnail images of all of the plots on the website for that category.

ISS Realtime Plots

Currently the ISS at UMBS transfers profiler, surface, and GLASS data to ATD every 12 hours, just after 10 and 22 UTC. Plot images for profiler winds, RASS temperatures, surface measurements, and GLASS soundings are grouped by day, and each day of plots resides in its own subdirectory. The wind and temperature data are generated every half-hour from profiler consensus processing. Surface measurements are recorded every minute, and skew-t plots of GLASS naturally only appear when soundings have been launched.

There are also plot images of the profiler signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), moments, and other parameters which are recorded about every minute. These plots are called SOAP images.
