A metrose is proposed for a pictorial representation of the meteorological parameters and is compared with the conventional windrose. In addition to the data represented by the windrose in relation to the wind speed and direction, the metrose includes the atmospheric stability persistence for each of the directions. The metrose is particularly more advantageous for applications in modeling and spatial planning and is more explicit than a windrose. © 1994.
