CPS Quality Controlled Radiosonde Dataset
The Cloud and Precipitation Study (CPS) is a project aimed at examining shallow and deep convection, as well as stratiform precipitation, in a tropical/subtropical environment in an attempt to better understand cloud and precipitation processes. The CPS site was located in Miami, Florida and was equipped with an EOL Integrated Sounding System (ISS). The ISS included a 915 MHz Multiple Antenna Profiling Radar (MAPR), a radiosonde sounding system, a surface meteorology tower, and a ceilometer for measuring cloud base heights. Seventy-eight radiosonde launches were made from the ISS site; seventy-three sounding files are included in the final archive. The average horizontal distance traveled by the radiosondes during this project was 31.5 km (19.6 miles) from surface to 20.3 km.
