NAME: NOAA/NWS High Resolution Radiosonde Data

Summary

This data set contains rawinsonde profiles from 63 National Weather Service (NWS) upper-air sites archived during the North American Monsoon Experiment (NAME) for the tier-3 area. During NAME, rawinsondes were released twice daily at 00 and 12 UTC with more released during the IOPs. The data files consist of vertical profiles of temperature, dew point, relative humidity, u and v wind components, total wind speed, wind direction, and altitude. The vertical resolution is six seconds. This data set has been quality controlled by The Joint Office of Science Support (JOSS). Consult the README for more information.

NOTE: This data set has been corrected as of 23 March 2010 for a significant dry bias. Only the following 5 stations were corrected: Amarillo, TX (KAMA), El Paso, TX/Santa Teresa, NM (KEPZ), Flagstaff, AZ (KFGZ), Midland, TX (KMAF), and Tucson, AZ (KTUS). See the documentation file for details on the correction(s) applied to this data set. Also see Ciesielski et al 2009 in JTECH.
