Hokitika Quality Controlled ISS Radiosonde Data (EOL Format)
The Deep Propagating Gravity Wave Experiment (DEEPWAVE) was a research project conducted over New Zealand to study how topography and tropospheric winds can induce the formation of gravity waves which propagate upward through the troposphere, into the stratosphere.
NCAR's Earth Observing Laboratory deployed an Integrated Sounding System (ISS) with a radar wind profiler and other ground instrumentation to Hokitika, located on the West Coast of the island. From that site, one hundred forty five balloon-borne radiosondes were launched between May 25 and July 28, 2014.
On 21 January 2015 two soundings contained in this data set were revised D20140624_111941_P.1.PresCorrQC.eol to remove all RH data as described in the readme file and D20140624_200231_P.1.PresCorrQC.eol to remove the temperature data below 465 mb due to a cold bias.
