FASTEX High Resolution Sounding Composite

Summary

This data set consists of a composite of all FASTEX sounding data at their "native" resolution, i.e. the highest possible resolution. It includes sounding data from 45 platforms including land and ship based sites as well as dropsondes from aircraft. This data set includes pressure, temperature, dew point, relative humidity, wind speed, wind direction, and altitude. Refer to the README file for details. Refer to the individual station README files for details on the processing conducted on individual sites.
