R/V Mirai Radiosonde L3.1 Data (ESC Format)

Summary

This dataset includes 518 high vertical resolution (2 sec) soundings from the R/V Mirai collected during the DYNAMO field campaign for 2011. Soundings were typically released every three hours during the two cruises (26 September through 26 October and 29 October through 1 December 2011) and four times daily from 5-10 December 2011. For most of these soundings R/V Mirai was on station near 80.5E and 8.00S Latitude. These data were converted to the EOL Sounding Composite (ESC) format. The station used Vaisala RS92-SGPD radiosondes. The ground station software was Digicora III/MW31/ver3.64.1. This data set is considered preliminary. These data were provided by JAMSTEC and had preliminarly quality control by NCAR/EOL. This L3.1 version of the data set had an additional correction applied for deck heating effects by JAMSTEC.
