EMEX Radiosonde Data


Vertical profiles of temperature, moisture, and wind from the Australian Bureau of Meteorology radiosonde systems in locations around the northern Australia and nearby islands during the Equatorial Mesoscale EXperiment (EMEX) campaign. In addition to the standard radiosonde sites, EMEX added three land sites around the Gulf of Carpentaria and the Chinese R/V Xiangyanghong #5 which was on the north end of the Gulf.
