This is one of the upper air data sets developed for the International H2O Project (IHOP 2002). This data set contains high resolution dropsonde data from the Falcon aircraft. The Falcon made drops on May 17th,19th,20th,21st,25th,29th and 31st, and on June 3rd,8th, and 9th 2002. The dropsonde data was provided by the National Center for Atmospheric Research Atmospheric Technology Division (NCAR/ATD).
