Temperature and water vapor mixing ratio profiles retrieved from the DLR MWR


This data set contains 10 minute resolution vertical profiles of temperature and water vapor mixing ratio from the Microwave Radiometer (MWR) operated by DLR (Deutsche Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt) during Perdigao. The retrievals were done using the AERIoe algorithm (release 2.9). These data are in the NetCDF data format. Quicklook imagery are also included.
