This dataset contains 113 quality-controlled radiosonde data files, in the EOL sounding format. These data were collected during the PECAN field campaign by the EOL Mobile GPS Atmospheric Upper-Air Sounding System (MGAUS). The MGAUS was generally collocated with the Mobile Integrated Sounding System (MISS), and these were collectively know as Mobile PECAN Integrated Sounding Array 4 (MP4) during the project.
