FASTEX soundings from the NOAA P-3 dropsondes

Summary

This dataset consists of dropsondes from the NOAA P-3. Dropsondes were taken as requested. These data were processed through an interpolation that included the removal of bad data from the higher resolution data, automated, and visual quality control. 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 for details.
