Bureau of Meteorology Darwin Australia Radiosonde Data (ESC Format)


The Australian Bureau of Meteorology routinely releases radiosondes from Darwin (WMO 94120) which is on the north-central coast of Australia. During the HAIC-HIWC field phase, soundings were routinely released four times daily (00, 06, 12, and 18 UTC; wind only at 06 and 18 UTC). This data set includes the quality controlled Darwin soundings released for the HAIC-HIWC field phase (15 January to 15 March 2014). A total of 254 quality-controlled, high resolution (2-second) soundings are contained in the final HAIC-HIWC data set.
