MSU Mobile Radiosonde Data (ESC Format)


Mississippi State University (MSU) utilized three mobile radiosonde systems to release radiosondes at locations around northeastern Mississippi, northern Alabama and southwestern Tennessee during VORTEX-SE_2016 Intensive Observation Periods (IOPs).  The choices for the locations and times of the releases were made in collaboration with other VORTEX-SE PIs.  Two different radiosonde systems were used by MSU during VORTEX-SE_2016, iMet (10 second resolution) from one vehicle and Windsond (1 second resolution) from two vehicles.  This data set includes a total of 69 radiosondes (23 iMet and 46 Windsond) from the three MSU systems during the VORTEX-SE_2016 field season (13 March to 1 May 2016).
