# mixed_parcel¶

metpy.calc.mixed_parcel(pressure, temperature, dewpoint, parcel_start_pressure=None, height=None, bottom=None, depth=<Quantity(100, 'hectopascal')>, interpolate=True)[source]

Calculate the properties of a parcel mixed from a layer.

Determines the properties of an air parcel that is the result of complete mixing of a given atmospheric layer.

Parameters
Returns

Notes

Only functions on 1D profiles (not higher-dimension vertical cross sections or grids). Since this function returns scalar values when given a profile, this will return Pint Quantities even when given xarray DataArray profiles.

Changed in version 1.0: Renamed p, dewpt, heights parameters to pressure, dewpoint, height
