PLOWS: MISS Radiosonde Data


The first phase of the PLOWS 2008-2009 project, during February and March of 2009, and the later phase during November 2009 through early March 2010, included the use of one Mobile Integrated Sounding System (MISS), which is a suite of instruments that includes a GPS Advanced Upper-air Sounding System (GAUS). During PLOWS, the GAUS was used to launch 14 radiosondes during the first field season and 105 radiosondes during the second field season . This dataset contains those 119 Mobile ISS Radiosonde soundings in EOL format.
