Purdue University Mobile Radiosonde Data (ESC Format)


Purdue University operated a mobile radiosonde system to release radiosondes at locations around northern Alabama and southern Tennessee during VORTEX-SE_2016 Intensive Observation Periods (IOPs).  The choices for the locations and times of the releases were made in collaboration with other VORTEX-SE PIs.  This data set includes a total of 23 radiosondes during the VORTEX-SE_2016 field season (14 March to 1 May 2016).
