NCAR SLW-sondes


These data files are IMet Radiosonde data with an attached Anasphere SLW-sonde. Data includes standard meteorological sounding fields plus a wire frequency field from the Supercooled Liquid Water (SLW) sonde. The SLW-content value derived from the wire frequency and the rise rate is appended to the data file as well. Each data file is in CSV format. All SLW-sondes were released from Horseshoe Bend, ID (43.9086, -116.2018) on an "as-available/as-needed" basis. For questions about this dataset, please contact the lead and corresponding author, David J. Serke of NCAR/RAL.
