Mariscal Estigarribia Sounding Data [NCAR/EOL]


This data set contains atmospheric profiles derived from rawinsondes released from Mariscal Estigarribia, Paraguay during the South American Low-Level Jet Experiment (SALLJEX) from 24 November 2002 thru 03 February 2003. Rawinsondes were generally released once per day at 06 or 18 UTC. The data files consist of vertical profiles of pressure, temperature, relative humidity, wind speed, and wind direction measured during rawinsonde ascent. The Joint Office of Science Support (JOSS) performed some quality control on this dataset. Consult the README for more information.

SALLJEX was funded by NOAA/OGP, NSF(ATM0106776) and funding agencies from Brazil FAPESP Grant 01/13816-1) and Argentina (ANPCYT PICT 07-06671, UBACyT 055).
