Mobile GPS Radiosonde Data from NSSL (ESC Format)


The National Severe Storms Laboratory (NSSL) operated a mobile radiosonde system for the Mesoscale Predictability Experiment (MPEX) during the period from 15 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 Colorado State University and the Purdue University. This final NSSL MPEX data set includes a total of 111 quality controlled, high vertical resolution (1 second) soundings.
