Mobile GPS Radiosonde Data from TAMU (ESC Format)


Texas A&M University (TAMU) operated a mobile radiosonde system during the Mesoscale Predictability Experiment (MPEX) during the period from 21 May to 31 May 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. This final MPEX data set includes a total of 23 quality controlled, high vertical resolution (1 second) soundings.
