Multi-Network Composite Highest Resolution Radiosonde Data


This data set includes the quality controlled high vertical resolution  radiosonde data from all sources (National Weather Service and mobile  soundings from Colorado State University, Mississippi State University,  NOAA/ATDD, Purdue University, Texas Tech University, and the University of  Louisiana Monroe), for the  Verification of the Origins of Rotation in  Thunderstorms Experiment-Southeast 2017 (VORTEX-SE_2017) project period  (1 March to 9 May 2017).  A total of 1705 quality-controlled soundings are  contained in the final data set. The radiosonde data from the University of  Alabama Huntsville will be added when they are available.
