Eta MOLTS Derived Soundings



The GCIP/GIST Eta MOLTS Derived Soundings dataset contains NCEP Eta Model Location Time Series (MOLTS) derived soundings from 67 locations within the GIST domain (33- 40N and 91-107W). These include only 67 of the 257 MOLTS locations and only for the initial analysis time (i.e. no forecast derived soundings) and only the state parameters (pressure, temperature, dew point, relative humidity, wind speed, wind direction, and altitude). The complete output (including hourly forecast derived soundings with all 32 surface and 12 upper level parameters)parameters) in original BUFR format are available from NCAR/SCD.
