Carrizal Venezuela 10mb Vertical Resolution Radiosonde Thermodynamic Data



This data set contains 10mb resolution vertical profiles of pressure, temperature, and mixing ratio from the Carrizal, Venezuela radiosonde system during the VIMHEX-II field season. A total of 330 VIZ 1290 radiosondes were released with one every day at 14 UTC with other special releases as requested. These data cover from the surface to typically 700mb and have had thermistor and hydristor lag corrections applied. The data are in a columnar ASCII format.
