TEMPDROP messages from the dropsondes released by the DOTSTAR ASTRA jet aircraft that flew during the ITOP field program. The DOTSTAR aircraft were based out of Taiwan and flew around tropical systems in the western Pacific Ocean during August-October 2010. The data files are in the GTS TEMPDROP format and contain the mandatory and significant level observations from the DOTSTAR dropsondes. NCAR/EOL have conducted no quality control on these data files.
