Radiosonde Data from Limon, Costa Rica

Summary

The dataset presented here contains sounding measurements collected at Limon, Costa Rica during the Organization of Tropical East Pacific Convection (OTREC) field campaign, using a Grawmet v 5.9.3.13 Sounding System. The observations were carried out between 16 August 2019 and 30 September 2019, launching 12-hourly soundings with periods of 2-3 hourly launches, for a total of 115 soundings. A launch on 9 Aug 2019 at 21Z was a test launch of the system. The sounding system at Limon had software issues that resulted in poor realtime altitude and pressure information about 20-25% of the time. The system permits "simulating" the soundings after they have been completed. See the readme for details.
