Nephanalysis

Nephanalysis

[nef-uh-nal-uh-sis]
A nephanalaysis is the analysis of a synoptic chart focusing on the types and amount of clouds and precipitation. A nephanalysis can be used to avoid hazardous weather areas, by ships preparing routes for cruises, and to locate good fishing areas. This technique is rarely performed nowadays, due to the prevalence of satellite imagery worldwide.
