This is one of the upper air data sets developed for the Hurricane Rainband and Intensity Change Experiment (RAINEX) project. This data set includes 4444 high vertical resolution (6-second) soundings from 17 National Weather Service (NWS) rawinsonde stations in the southeast United States and Puerto Rico and 268 high vertical resolution (1.2-second) soundings from 1 NWS rawindonde station in the southeast United States for the period 01 July 2005 to 31 October 2005. There are also 72 high vertical resolution (1-second) soundings from the NWS Corpus Christi, TX site from 3 October to 31 October 2005 when it switched to the Radiosonde Replacement System (RRS) soundings.
