NCAR/EOL ISS Radiosonde Data


This dataset contains password protected FINAL Vaisala MW41/RS41 radiosonde profiles collected by the NCAR/EOL Integrated Sounding System (ISS) located at the Park Falls site during the CHEESEHEAD field campaign. These data have been quality controlled. 

At the base trailer (ISS1), 172 radiosondes were launched during the campaign. The typical launch schedule was daily at 1300 local time. There were 2 Intensive Operating Periods (IOP) where radiosondes were launched 4x per day: ~ 0520, 0700, 1300, and 1715. Included are two test flights launched prior to the official start of the campaign.  Click on the 'Related Links' below that accesses the daily profile plots.
