NCAR/EOL ISS and UWI SPARC Radiosonde Data



172 Vaisala MW41/RS41 radiosonde profiles collected by the NCAR/EOL Integrated Sounding System (ISS) and University of Wisconsin SPARC during the Chequamegon Heterogeneous Ecosystem Energy-balance Study Enabled by a High-density Extensive Array of Detectors (CHEESEHEAD) field campaign are included in this dataset. These data have been quality controlled. The typical launch schedule was daily at 1300 local time. There were 2 Intensive Operating Periods (IOP) where radiosondes were launched 4x per day: ~ 0520, 0700, 1300, and 1715. Included are two test flights launched prior to the official start of the campaign.  Click on the 'Related Links' below that accesses the daily profile plots.
