TOGA COARE soundings from R/V Keifu Maru

Project:

Summary

This dataset consists of sounding data from aboard the Research Vessel (R/V) Keifu-Maru which was operated by Japan. The R/V was in TOGA-COARE domain during the period from 3 November to 16 November 1992. Soundings were taken four times per day (00, 06, 12, and 18 UTC) during participation in the IOP. UCAR/JOSS conducted no quality control on these data. This dataset includes pressure, temperature, dew point, relative humidity, wind speed, wind direction, and altitude taken at a variable vertical resolution. Refer to the station README file for details. NOTE: This dataset has been updated (5/2/2002) with corrected data for the humidity measurement errors of the Vaisala RS 80 radiosonde (Wang et al 2002). Please see the README for details.
