University of Missouri 10-second Vertical Resolution Radiosonde Data Set



This data set includes high vertical resolution (10-second) soundings from the University of Missouri mobile sounding site from the Profiling of Winter Storms (PLOWS) 2008-2009 and PLOWS 2009-2010 field seasons. During PLOWS 2008-2009 a total of 27 soundings are included from IOP-1 (11-12 February 2009), IOP-2 (18 February 2009), and IOP-5 (28-29 March 2009). During PLOWS 2009-2010 a total of 65 soundings are included from IOP-7 (15-17 November 2009), IOP-8 (23-25 November 2009), IOP-9 (2-3 December 2009), IOP-10 (8-9 December 2009), IOP-13 (16-17 January 2010), IOP-14 (24 January 2010), and IOP-21 (22 February 2010). These soundings were provided by the University of Missouri and converted and quality controlled by NCAR/EOL.

This station used IMET1 AB GPS radiosondes during PLOWS.
