EOL MGAUS Colorado Sounding Data (ESC Format)


This is one of the upper air data sets developed for the Deep Convective Clouds and Chemistry Project (DC3) 2012 project. This data set includes 31 high vertical resolution (1-sec) soundings from the NCAR/EOL Mobile GPS Advanced Upper-Air Sounding System (MGAUS). They were released from locations around northeastern Colorado from 3 May to 18 July 2012 as part of the DC3 field campaign. This data set is the same as the EOL MGAUS Colorado Sounding Data but with the format converted to the EOL Sounding Composite (ESC) format.
