nephanalysis

The analysis of a synoptic chart focusing on the types and amount of clouds and precipitation.

Cloud systems (or nephsystems) are identified both as entities and in relation to analysis features determined from other information. A chart of this type is sometimes termed a neph chart.
See isoneph, nephcurve.
