DYCOMS-II Upper Air: Vandenberg AFB High Resolution (300 m) Radiosonde Data

Summary

The Vandenberg Air Force Base High Resolution Radiosonde Data is one of several upper air data sets collected by the National Center For Atmospheric Research/Earth Observing Laboratory (NCAR/EOL) as part of the Dynamics and Chemistry of Marine Stratocumulus Phase II: Entrainment Studies (DYCOMS-II) project. Included in the data set are pressure, temperature, relative humidity, U and V wind components, and altitude taken during radiosonde flights from the United States Air Force Base at Vandenberg, California. The data set covers the period from 7 - 31 July 2001. The soundings are typically available twice per day at 00 and 12 UTC. NCAR/EOL has performed automated quality control on these data. Consult the README for more information.
