GAPP: DOE ARM SGP Radiosonde Data

Summary

This data set contains 2-second vertical resolution radiosonde data from the Department of Energy (DOE) Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Southern Great Plains (SGP) site. Radiosondes are released at the ARM Central Facility every 6 hours (00, 06, 12, and 18 UTC). The ARM SGP Boundary Facilities only release radiosondes during special Intensive Observing Period. These stations are located in southern Kansas and northern Oklahoma. This data set covers the period from 1 July 2001 through present. These data files are in monthly zip files that have an average size of 10 Mb. NCAR/EOL has not done any additional processing or quality control on these data.
