NCAR/EOL Quality Controlled MW41 Radiosonde Data (NetCDF)


This dataset contains quality controlled radiosonde data collected by the NCAR/EOL Integrated Sounding System (ISS), using a Vaisala MW41 sounding system that was located on the Dugway Proving Ground in Utah during the Instabilities, Dynamics, and Energetics accompanying Atmospheric Layering (IDEAL) field campaign. This project marked ISS's first deployment of the RS-41 radiosonde from Vaisala. In total, 93 radiosonde data files are contained in this archive in NetCDF format.
