CuPIDO: NCAR Mobile GAUS (MGAUS) Rawinsonde Data


The goal of the Cumulus Photogrammetric, In-Situ and Doppler Observations (CuPIDO) project was to examine the onset and development of orographic thunderstorms associated with the North American Monsoon using surface stations, digital visible spectrum cameras, soundings and aircraft data. For this study NCAR/EOL deployed two mobile sounding systems to the mountainous region of Southern Arizona just north of Tucson. Soundings were made from various locations. Ninety-six radiosonde launches were performed between July 17 and August 17, 2006.
