Diego Garcia Radiosonde L3 Data (ESC Format) [NCAR/EOL]

Summary

This dataset includes 679 high vertical resolution soundings from Diego Garcia collected during the DYNAMO field campaign for 2011-12. Soundings were typically released every three hours 30 September 2011 to 15 January 2012. The station used Vaisala RS92-SGPD radiosondes. This data set is the same as Diego Garcia Radiosonde L3 Data [/NCAR-EOL] but with the format converted to the EOL Sounding Composite (ESC) format to match the other L2 DYNAMO sounding data sets.
