DEEPWAVE: Hokitika Quality Controlled ISS Radiosonde Data


The National Center for Atmospheric Research/Earth Observing Laboratory (NCAR/EOL) released special radiosondes from its Integrated Sounding System (ISS) site on the west coast of the South Island of New Zealand at Hokitika. During the DEEPWAVE field phase, soundings were released from Hokitika at 00 UTC every day and additional soundings were released at 3 hourly intervals during particular Intensive Observing Periods. This data set includes the quality controlled Hokitika soundings released for the DEEPWAVE field phase (25 May to 28 July 2014). A total of 145 quality-controlled, high vertical resolution (1-second) soundings are contained in the final DEEPWAVE data set.
