MFR Model# 979-8-986885


To a large extent, the study of weather, better known as meteorology, is rooted in a few fundamental properties. It is these properties that are the key to unlocking all that the Skew-T log (p) diagram has to offer. Even though some of the concepts and dialog presented in this primer are quite challenging even for the most seasoned pilot, they are born out of these fundamental properties of air.

A thermodynamic chart such as the Skew-T log (p) diagram is clearly the best kept secret in aviation. This primer is the most comprehensive resource available for general aviation pilots that want to leverage its use as supplemental weather guidance for preflight route planning. Specifically, the Skew-T log (p) diagram allows you to “drill down” over a particular location to identify or describe adverse weather better in time and space than any other single chart or diagram assuming you know how to unlock its plentiful secrets. Written by aviation weather expert and FAA-certificated instrument flight instructor, Dr. Scott Dennstaedt, this primer is 300 pages in length and contains over 200 hundred charts, diagrams, and photographs to help you quickly understand this complex subject.
