Soundings Multi-Network Composite 5-mb Level Upper Air Data [NCAR/EOL]


The upper air 5-mb level sounding data for the North American Monsoon Experiment (NAME) 2004 Tier 3 domain (5°N to 50°N latitude and 125°W to 75°W longitude) are contained within this dataset. The dataset covers the time period 1 June through 30 September 2004. This NAME 2004 Sounding Composite Highest Resolution Upper-Air Dataset contains 21254 soundings from 91 sites.

NOTE: As of 25 March 2010 many of the soundings in this data set have had a correction applied to account for a significant dry bias. See the documentation file for details on the correction(s) applied to this data set. Also see Ciesielski et al 2009 in JTECH.
