Automated Surface Observing System (ASOS) 1-min Data

This data set is ancillary data for the Terrain-induced Rotor Experiment (T-REX). This data set contains 1-minute resolution surface meteorological data from the Automated Surface Observing System (ASOS) stations located across the United States, including Guam. These data were retrieved from the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) for the T-Rex period (March and April 2006). Each of the two types of files, om1 and om2, consists of a compressed tar file containing one month of data, with individual files for each station in the United States. The data are in ASCII format.
