NOAA-DHA: Long-term NOAA Dropsonde Hurricane Archive
Dropsonde data is primarily used in studying and helping predict the path and intensity of hurricanes. The data in this archive are a compilation of 17 years (1996-2012) of high resolution dropsonde data collected by NOAA’s National Hurricane Center and Hurricane Research Division. In the future, subject to the availability of support, this data archive will be expanded to include quality controlled dropsonde data from NCAR’s Earth Observing Laboratory, the United States Air Force, NASA and other agencies. The raw data were reformatted to the same format and have undergone consistent quality-control in order to produce a high-quality, long-term dropsonde climatology that may be used by researchers for various scientific applications. The number of storms and soundings in each year is summarized in the readme documentation.
