TOGA COARE soundings from R/V Kexue 1

Summary

This dataset consists of Integrated Sounding System (ISS) sounding data from aboard the People's Republic of China Research Vessel (R/V) Kexue 1 which was operated by U.S. personnel. Soundings were taken four times daily (00, 06, 12, and 18 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 10 second vertical intervals. Refer to the station README file for details. NOTE: This dataset has been updated (4/23/2002) with corrected data for the humidity measurement errors of the Vaisala RS80 radiosonde (Wang et al 2002). Please see the README for additional information.
