This is one of the upper-air data sets developed for the International H2O Project 2002 (IHOP 2002). This data set contains high resolution dropsonde profiles from the Lear aircraft collected during IHOP 2002. The Lear made drops on May 14th, 15th, 16th, the 22nd, and 24th and on June 3rd, 8th thru 12th, 15th thru 20th,the 22nd,and 24th thru 25th 2002. The dropsonde data was provided by the National Center for Atmospheric Research Atmospheric Technology Division (NCAR/ATD). An important note to users: ATD reprocessed this data and released a new version of this dataset on May 1st,2003. See ATD Reprocessing. Consult the README for more information.
