NSF/NCAR G-V QC Dropsonde Data (EOL)
GISMOS was a project conducted over the Gulf of Mexico on the G-V aircraft. The purpose of the project was to test the GNSS Instrument System for MultiStatic and Occultation Sensing, a HAIS instrument. GISMOS is part of the HEFT-08 project. HEFT-08 is one of a series of airborne projects that are conducted by the Research Aviation Facility, part of the Earth Observing Laboratory (EOL/RAF), to allow instrument developers flight time on the G-V. The goals of the HEFT projects are instrument validation, performance testing and preparation for research field deployments. During the GISMOS project 20 dropsonde soundings were collected between February 14 and February 22, 2008. All 20 quality-controlled soundings are contained in the final archive.
