Australia High Resolution BUFR Radiosonde Data

This data set contains the high vertical resolution (2-second) radiosonde profiles of temperature, moisture, and wind for eleven stations on the southern portion of the Australian continent (Perth, Albany, Esperance, Kalgoorlie, Ceduna, Woomera, Adelaide, Melbourne, Wagga Wagga, Sydney, and Williamtown) and three stations from islands (Tasmania, Lord Howe Island, and Macquarie Island) during the SOCRATES field phase. These data were retrieved in real time from the Global Telecommunication System (GTS) and have had no additional quality control. The data are in BUFR format.
