NOAA P-3 Dropsonde High Resolution L3 Data (ESC Format) [NCAR/EOL]

Summary

This is one of the upper air data sets developed for the Dynamics of the Madden-Julian Oscillation (DYNAMO) 2011-2012 project. This data set contains 469 high vertical resolution dropsondes released from the NOAA P-3 between 9 November and 13 December 2011. This data set is the same as NOAA P-3 Dropsonde High Resolution L3 Data (EOL format) but with the format converted to the EOL Sounding Composite (ESC) format to match the L2 DYNAMO sounding data sets.
