Council NCAR ISS High Resolution Soundings - Tundra Site (C2) [Lynch, A.]

Summary

This dataset contains rawinsonde profiles collected from Council, Seward Peninsula, Tundra Site (C2) during Arctic Transitions in the Land-Atmosphere System (ATLAS) program 1999 summer field campaign. Profiles were collected by National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) Atmospheric Technology Division (ATD) using the Integrated Sounding System (ISS). Sounding files consist of vertical profiles of pressure, temperature, dew point, relative humidity, wind speed and direction, u and v wind components, altitude, and position (latitude and longitude) measured every second during the balloon's ascent. Rawinsonde data is available on the following days: July 23,24,27-31, and August 2-9, and 11. Consult the README for more information.
