Bureau of Meteorology Macquarie Island Radiosonde Data (ESC format)

Summary

The Australian Bureau of Meteorology routinely releases radiosondes from Macquarie Island (WMO 94998) which is about 1000 km to the southwest of the South Island of New Zealand. During the DEEPWAVE field phase, soundings were routinely released twice daily (00 and 12 UTC) and there were also some occasional special releases. This data set includes the quality controlled Macquarie Island soundings released for the DEEPWAVE field phase (28 May to 31 July 2014). A total of 140 quality-controlled, high resolution (2-second) soundings are contained in the final DEEPWAVE data set.
