Mexico SMN-CNA Rawinsonde Data
This is one of the upper air data sets developed for the North American Monsoon Experiment (NAME). This data set includes the high resolution vertical (2 second) rawinsonde data from the Servicio Meteorol&ocaute;gico Nacional (SMN) Comisión Nacional del Agua (CNA), which forms part of the Secretaríade Medio Ambiente y Recursos Naturales (SEMARNAT). There are 15 stations that measure pressure, temperature, humidity and wind that are released twice a day.
The SMN home page can be found here: http://smn.cna.gob.mx/SMN.html. The web site is in Spanish.
NOTE: This data set has been corrected as of 18 March 2010 for a significant dry bias. The 9 stations that were corrected are: La Paz (MLAP), Mazatlan (MMZT), Chihuahua (MMCU), Torreon (MMTC), Monterrey (MMAN), Zacatacas (MMZC), Guadalajara (MGDL), Manzanillo (MZLO), and Empalme (MGYM).
