Idaho Power Company Lowman Sounding Data [IPC] (ESC Format)

Summary

This dataset contains sounding data from the Idaho Power Company at the Lowman site for Seeded and Natural Orographic Wintertime clouds - the Idaho Experiment (SNOWIE). Idaho Power utilizes Lockheed Martin LMS6 Radiosondes and Ground Systems.  The LMS6 Radiosondes use GPS data to track the radiosonde’s position and height as well as calculating wind speed and direction.  Other meteorological data that are collected is pressure, temperature, and humidity.  These are calculated from a suite of onboard sensors that include a chip thermistor temperature sensor and a LMU6 humidity sensor.  This data is transmitted to the LMS6 Ground System at a frequency between 400.250 and 405.875 MHz. The data are in ESC format. Refer to the readme for further information.
