National Weather Service High Resolution Radiosonde Data (ESC Format) [NCAR-EOL]
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) National Weather Service (NWS) routinely releases radiosondes two times per day (00 and 12 UTC) and does occasional special releases at other times of day (usually 18 UTC) from sites across the United States. This data set includes the quality controlled NWS soundings released from 23 stations located within the Mesoscale Predictability Experiment (MPEX) domain for the MPEX field phase (15 May to 15 June 2013). A total of 1484 quality controlled, high resolution (1-second) soundings are contained in the final MPEX data set. These data were converted into the EOL Sounding Composite (ESC) format (columnar ascii).
