FP3 Ellis, KS Radiosonde Data (ESC Format)

Summary

During PECAN, Millersville University released radiosondes at the PECAN Fixed PISA (PECAN Integrated Sounding Array) 3 site in Ellis, Kansas. The radiosondes were released during PECAN Intensive Observation Periods (IOPs). This data set includes the quality controlled PECAN FP3 Ellis soundings released during the PECAN field phase (2 June to 16 July 2015). A total of 134 quality-controlled, high vertical resolution (1-second) soundings are contained in the final PECAN data set.

Version 2 of this data set was released on 9 February 2016. Version 2 contains the latitude and longitude parameters that were mistakenly left out of Version 1. Additionally, at the request of the PI, the Mixing Ratio parameter has been included in this version.
