Council NCAR ISS High Resolution Soundings - Dry Tundra Site (C8) [Lynch, A.]



This dataset contains atmospheric profiles derived from rawinsondes released from the Dry Tundra Site at Council, Seward Peninsula for the Arctic Transitions in the Land-Atmosphere System (ATLAS) project during the summer 2000 field campaign. The data were collected by the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) Atmospheric Technology Division (ATD) using NCAR's integrated sounding system (ISS). Sounding files consist of vertical profiles of pressure, temperature, dew point, relative humidity, wind speed and direction, U and V wind components, altitude, and position(latitude and longitude), measured every second during the sonde's ascent. Data is available for the following days: June 22, 29, 30, July 1, 2, and 6-12. See the README for additional information.
