RadioSonde: Tools for Plotting Skew-T Diagrams and Wind Profiles

A collection of programs for plotting SKEW-T,log p diagrams and wind profiles for data collected by radiosondes (the typical weather balloon-borne instrument). The format of this plot with companion lines to assess atmospheric stability are both standard in meteorology and difficult to create from basic graphics functions. Hence this package. One novel feature is being able add several profiles to the same plot for comparison. Use "help(ExampleSonde)" for an explanation of the variables needed and how they should be named in a data frame. See <> for the package home page.
