Multi-Network Composite Highest Resolution Radiosonde 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 Verification of the Origins of Rotation in Thunderstorms Experiment-Southeast 2017 (VORTEX-SE_2017) project. The composite includes 1803 soundings from all VORTEX-SE 2017 sounding systems (Colorado State University, Mississippi State University, NOAA/ATDD, Purdue University, Texas Tech University, University of Louisiana Monroe, and University of Alabama Huntsville) as well as those from the National Weather Service.
