PIBAL Wind Only Sounding Data from PACS-SONET

Summary

This is one of the upper air data sets developed for the North American Monsoon Experiment (NAME). This data set includes the high vertical resolution (30 second to 480 seconds after release and 60 second from 480 seconds after release to the end of the sounding) pilot balloon (PIBAL) data from the Pan American Climate Studies-Sounding Network (PACS-SONET).

This data set was provided and quality controlled by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration National Severe Storms Laboratory (MOAA/NSSL). NCAR/EOL has not done any additional quality checking of these data.
