Multi-Network Composite Highest Resolution Upper Air Data

Summary

This data set contains a composite of the highest vertical resolution (i.e. the “native resolution”) upper air sounding data from all sources for the Seeded and Natural Orographic Wintertime Clouds: The Idaho Experiment (SNOWIE) project. This composite includes soundings from the mobile University of Illinois Urbana- Champaign (UIUC; 34 soundings), the Idaho Power Company (IPC) Crouch (69 soundings) and Lowman (69 soundings) sites, the NCAR Horseshoe Bend site (12 soundings) as well as from 15 National Weather Service (NWS) stations across the western United States (2191 soundings) for a total of 2329 soundings. This is ESC data with columnar ASCII format.
