SGP97: MAPS MOLTS Derived Soundings

Summary

The SGP97 MAPS MOLTS Derived Soundings data set contains NOAA/FSL MAPS Model Location Time Series (MOLTS) derived soundings from up to 489 locations over North America. These output are 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, and wind direction). The complete output (including hourly forecast derived soundings with all surface and upper level parameters) in the original BUFR format are available from NCAR/SCD. See the README file for more details.
