SOAS Quality Controlled ISS Radiosonde Data



The National Center for Atmospheric Research/Earth Observing Laboratory (NCAR/EOL) operated a GPS Advanced Upper-air Sounding System (GAUS) radiosonde system as part of its Integrated Sounding System (ISS) site at the Southern Oxidant and Aerosol Study (SOAS) National Weather Service (NWS) site which was located near the Centerville (CTR), Alabama super site. Soundings were typically released twice daily at 15 and 21 UTC from 30 May to 15 July 2013. There were some periods of more intensive sounding operations. This SAS final data set includes a total of 105 quality controlled, high vertical resolution (1-second) soundings.
