Mobile GPS Radiosonde Data from CSU (ESC Format)


Colorado State University (CSU) operated a mobile radiosonde system during the Mesoscale Predictability Experiment (MPEX) during the period from 10 May to 14 June 2013. Soundings were taken intermittently as determined by the weather situation, with a focus on the pre-convective and convectively disturbed environments near deep convective storms in the central United States. Soundings were coordinated with releases from the mobile teams from Purdue University and the National Severe Storms Laboratory (NSSL). This data set includes a total of 55 quality controlled, high vertical resolution (2 second) soundings are contained in the final MPEX data set.
