This data is a composite upper-air sounding data set which contains all upper-air sounding data collected from 25 platforms (excluding the reference sonde) during IHOP_2002. The data in the composite is at the highest possible resolution (i.e. the 'native' resolution). For more information about this data set please consult the Readme. Note: as of May 12th,2003, this dataset contains reprocessed dropsonde profiles from the Lear and Falcon. ATD released the new dropsonde dataset May 1st,2003.
