ACE-1: Discoverer ISS High Vertical Resolution Balloon Data

Summary

Data from the NCAR/Integrated Sounding System (ISS) upper air data collected aboard the ship R/V Discoverer during the ACE-1 transect and intensive operations, via the NCAR/Atmospheric Technology Division (ATD). Data consist of 10-sec vertical resolution data (temperature, dew point temperature, pressure, and winds). These soundings were typically taken at 00 and 12 UTC daily with up to 6-hr frequency during intensive operations.
