When it comes to mesoanalysis, there are a lot of products to work with. In this guide, we walk through the basic indexes that’ll help you in discerning severe thunderstorm and other storm environments.

This course walks you through some basic concepts of Mesoanalysis and how to read some of the data presented.

Hopefully, by the end of this course you will be able to peer through mesoanalysis graphics with knowledge. The biggest thing to remember about the graphics is that they are model generated. This means that mesoanalysis graphics are prone to the same problems models are.

Garbage in, garbage out.

We will walk through surface observations along with upper air graphics. Also, we’ll take a look at instability and wind shear along with composite indexes. The hope is that this guide is a pretty complete tool for storm spotters to utilize.

In the end, we hope you enjoy this brief look at Mesoanalysis and how to get the most out of the graphics.

Mesoanalysis Lessons

The lessons in this course include:

This guide won’t go extremely deep into the science behind the why or how of each index — but rather will stick to a more personal and practical level to guide you through mesoanalysis and what to look for. Ideally, beginning and intermediate storm chasers and storm spotters will find the info inside helpful.
