SNOWIE: NCAR SLW Radiosonde Data


The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) released radiosondes with an attached Anasphere SLW (Supercooled Liquid Water) sonde from its Horseshoe Bend, Idaho site as part of the SNOWIE (Seeded and Natural Orographic Wintertime Clouds: The Idaho Experiment) operations. This data set includes the 12 high resolution NCAR radiosondes released over 5 days during the SNOWIE field phase (18 January to 9 March 2017). This data set includes data from only the iMet radiosonde; no data are included from the Anasphere SLW sonde. The data are in the EOL Sounding Composite (ESC) format and have undergone quality control. Please see the attached readme file for more information.
