During BAMEX,rawinsondes were released twice daily at 00 and 12 UTC. The data files consist of vertical profiles of temperature, dew point, relative humidity, u and v wind components, total wind speed, wind direction, and altitude. The vertical resolution is six seconds. This data set has been quality controlled by The Joint Office for Science Support (JOSS). Consult the README for more information.
