National Weather Service High Resolution Radiosonde Data (ESC Format) [NCAR-EOL]

Summary

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 16 stations located within the Southeast Atmosphere Study (SAS) domain for the SAS field phase (1 June to 15 July 2013). A total of 1438 quality controlled, high resolution (1-second) soundings are contained in the final SAS data set. These data were converted into the EOL Sounding Composite (ESC) format (columnar ASCII).
