This service creates a vertical profile plot of input data; data values for a given date nearest to a selected point are plotted with the X-axis representing the geophysical value and the Y-axis as altitude in pressure units. Between 1 and 6 profiles (default is 3) are displayed on a single plot, including precission error bars.
Input parameters: Geophysical variable
Output Description: Vertical Profile of geophysical variable for date
Nearest measurements to lat/lon point
Output Parameters: Same as input
Input: Level 2 profile data from HDF file
Output: Vertical Profile plot image
Algorithm Details: The operation will plot between 1 and 6 profiles on a single page, with error bars. Each profile is identified by its own color. User can optionally turn off error bar display.
