WEATHER ANALYSIS

ELEVATION WEATHER MODE

Elevation Weather Mode (ELEVN) provides
a means to assess storm cell height and development by providing
selectable altitude slices. These slices from the 3D memory are
corrected for the curvature of the earth, providing a view at a constant
altitude level.
Selecting ELEVN on the mode selection knob enters the Elevation
Mode. On initial selection, the altitude slice is set to the current aircraft
altitude (nearest 1,000 ft). The Elevation Selection Knob is used to
select the desired altitude slice from 0 to 60,000 ft in 1,000-foot
intervals. Off path weather information is removed in ELEVN mode to
enhance analysis of weather reflectivity. If the Hazard Display features
are enabled, turbulence will be shown in ELEVN mode. Otherwise,
turbulence is not shown in this mode.
