PECAN: Mobile PISA 3 UW/SSEC SPARC Radiosonde Data


The PECAN Mobile PISA (PECAN Integrated Sounding Array) 3 was the SSEC Portable Atmospheric Research Center (SPARC) facility run by the University of Wisconsin-Madison Space Science and Engineering Center (SSEC). SPARC released radiosondes at locations around the Central United States during some of the PECAN Intensive Observation Periods (IOPs) and Unofficial Field Operations (UFOs). This data set includes the 82 high vertical resolution (1-second), quality controlled PECAN Mobile PISA 1 CLAMPS soundings released for the PECAN field phase (2 June to 16 July 2015).
