UIUC Mobile Sounding Data
This dataset contains data collected from 34 successful l University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) Mobile Radiosonde launches collected during the SNOWIE field campaign. Each successful launch, named by year-month-day-time-location.nc, has its own netCDF file. The data in each file includes: temperature (Celsius), relative humidity, time of sample (in seconds past launch time), height AGL (m), wind speed (m/s), wind direction (degrees), and pressure (mb) as measured by the radiosonde. The coordinates and altitude above MSL (m) corresponding to where each sounding was launched are written in the attributes of each file. All surface wind speed and direction is used from the previous hourly observation from KBOI for the Boise sites and KEUL for the Caldwell site. One exception was the launch on 16 February 2017 at Caldwell in which KBOI observations were used instead. Included with each dataset order is a python script (netcdfreadout.py) to easily view the netcdf data files.
