NCAR GAUS QC Radiosonde Data



The Global Atmospheric Upper-Air System radiosonde dataset from the Thunderstorm Electrification and Lightning EXperiment (TELEX) consists of 27 soundings launched from various locations throughout Oklahoma between 24 May 24 and 20 June, 2004. There are three soundings that are included in the final dataset that were test launches: D20040916_130611.1.QC, D20040923120109.1.QC and D20041001_044351.1.QC.  Some quality control has been done, but not using EOL ASPEN because TELEX04 was the first project for which GAUS was used and ASPEN was not yet configured for it. Also, there were no surface met sensors available to compare prelaunch data against. For more information please refer to the README file.
