Manus ARM AMF Radiosonde L3 Data (ESC Format) [NCAR/EOL]


This is one of the upper air data sets developed for the Dynamics of the Madden-Julian Oscillation (DYNAMO) 2011-2012 project. This preliminary data set includes 1411 high vertical resolution (2-sec) soundings from the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) C1 Momote, Manus Island site, collected during the DYNAMO field campaign for 24 September 2011 through 31 March 2012. There are typically eight soundings per day at 00, 03, 06, 09, 12, 15, 18, and 21 UTC. These data were provided by ARM and had preliminarly quality control by NCAR/EOL. This L3 version of the data set has a correction by CSU -- see the readme for details. This station used Vaisala RS92-SGP radiosondes with GPS windfinding during the DYNAMO field campaign.
