CSU/NCSU/NSSL MGAUS Radiosonde Data
During PECAN, Colorado State University (CSU) and the NOAA/National Severe Storms Laboratory in conjunction with North Carolina State University (NCSU) operated three Mobile GPS Advanced Upper-Air Sounding (MGAUS) radiosonde systems that released soundings during PECAN Intensive Observation Periods (IOP) around the central United States. During the IOPs, the MGAUS soundings would typically be released starting after 00 UTC and continue during the nights operations. A total of 251 (CSU-84, NSSL1-83, and NSSL2-84) quality-controlled, high vertical resolution (1-second) soundings are contained in the final PECAN data set.
