DC3: Redstone Arsenal Radiosonde Data


This is one of the upper air data sets developed for the Deep Convective Clouds and Chemistry Project (DC3) 2012 project. This data set includes 10 high vertical resolution (2-sec) soundings from the US Army Redstone Arsenal site in Alabama. Redstone releases soundings at 12 UTC from Monday through Friday. This data set includes only those soundings taken on days of DC3 operations from 15 May to 15 June 2012. These soundings were taken by personnel at the Redstone Arsenal and the data provided by the University of Alabama-Huntsville. NCAR/EOL converted the soundings to ESC format and passed them through a QC process.
