ACE-1: Discoverer ISS RASS Temperature Profiles [PRELIMINARY] (GIF)


915 MHz Radio Acoustic Sounding System (RASS) Temperature profiles of the NCAR/Integrated Sounding System (ISS) upper air data collected aboard the R/V Discoverer during the ACE-1 transect and intensive operations, via the NCAR/Atmospheric Technology Division (ATD), then converted to GIF image format. These images consist of temperature profiles to approx 1500 m height (AGL) at 60 m vertical resolution, taken every 30-min. The data used in these plots are PRELIMINARY and could change significantly following final processing by ATD.
