From The Weather Center:

WeatherBrains 101: In this edition of WeatherBrains 101, we take a look at a handy tool used by meteorologists for analyzing the atmosphere. First discussed in a paper written in 1857, a hodograph is a useful tool for visualizing the atmosphere from data gained through soundings.

Listener SurveyListener Surveys: Okay, we continue to drive this topic into the ground, but we really do like to hear from you.
