EPOCH 2017 Global Hawk QC Dropsonde Data

Summary

The East Pacific Origins and Characteristics of Hurricanes (EPOCH) was a NASA funded research campaign aimed at studying tropical storms in the Northern Hemisphere in order to learn more about conditions that drive changes in intensity, and to use the data to improve forecasting models that predict tropical storm impacts on coastal communities.  The project planned six research flights of the NASA Global Hawk conducted between August 1 and August 30, 2017 with 50% of the flights supported through a partnership with the NOAA UAS Program Office based from NASA Armstrong Flight Research Facility. Only three research flights were flown during the field campaign.  This data set contain all 216 quality controlled dropsondes deployed from those three flights.
