TOGA COARE soundings derived from NOAA P-3 flight level data


This dataset consists of soundings derived from National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) NOAA-42 and NOAA-43 flight level data. Data were taken at events of opportunity. The data were processed through the visual quality control process. No automated or spatial quality control were conducted on this dataset. The dataset includes pressure, temperature, dew point, relative humidity, wind speed, wind direction, and altitude taken at one second intervals along the flight path. Refer to the station README file for details.
