National Weather Service Radiosonde Data [NCAR/EOL]


This is one of the upper air data sets developed for the Ice in Clouds Experiment 2007 (ICE-L 2007). This data set includes 487 high vertical resolution (1-second) Radiosonde Replacement System (RRS) soundings from the four National Weather Service (NWS) rawinsonde stations in the PLOWS 2008-2009 region (Grand Junction, CO; Boise, IA; Riverton, WY; and Salt Lake City, UT). Additionally, 245 high vertical resolution (6-second) MicroArt soundings from from Albuquerque, NM and Denver International Airport, CO NWS rawinsonde stations are included. The data cover the period from 1 November to 31 December 2007. The soundings were typically released twice a day (0000 and 1200 UTC). The data are in EOL Sounding Composite format (columnar ascii).
