FRAMZY2002_aranda_rs: 3-hourly radiosoundings, launched onboard RV Aranda, 136 soundings

Brümmer, Burghard et al.

Dataset
Summary
From 2002-03-04 to 2002-03-23 a total of 136 radiosondes were launched from RV Aranda at intervalls of about 3 hours. Measured parameters are temperature, pressure and humidity. Wind direction and speed are calculated from GPS positioning.
The dataset consists of one archive file (.tar) which contains 136 data files, one for each sounding. The file format is 'ascii-text', the representation of measured parameters is described in the 'readme'-file inside the .tar-archive and in the 'additional_info' entry (FRAMZY2002_aranda_rs_info).

Description
The data has been quality checked. Obviously wrong measurements have been sorted out. For details on sensor type, sensor accuracy, launching procedure, ground check etc. see the 'additional_info' entry (FRAMZY2002_aranda_rs_info).
Description
See 'consistency_report'
Description
Few dates may be missing due to equipment failure or severe weather. Some sounding may contain data gaps due to transmission errors. Wind data shortly after launch may be intermittent due to GPS problems.
