TOGA COARE soundings from R/V Natsushima

Summary

This dataset consists of sounding data from aboard the Research Vessel (R/V) Natsushima. The R/V was operated by the Japan Marine Science and Technology Center. The R/V was in the TOGA-COARE domain during the period from 2 February to 18 February 1993. Soundings were taken up to eight times per day (00, 03, 06, 09, 12, 15, 18, and 21 UTC) during participation in the IOP. UCAR/JOSS conducted no quality control on these data. This dataset includes pressure, temperature, dew point, relative humidity, wind speed, wind direction, and altitude taken at two second vertical intervals. Refer to the station README file for details. NOTE: This dataset has been updated (5/2/2002) with corrected data for the humidity measurement errors of the Vaisala RS 80 radiosonde (Wang et al 2002). Please see the README for details.
