BEACHON QC Radiosonde Data - Manitou Site

The Bio-hydro-atmosphere interactions of Energy, Aerosols, Carbon, H2O, Organics and Nitrogen (BEACHON) is a project aimed at examining the evolution of thermodynamic structures in the boundary layer above the Manitou Experimental Forest located Colorado. BEACHON included the use of two stationary GPS Advanced Upper-Air Sounding (GAUS) systems at two separate sites, the Hayman site and the Manitou site. These sounding systems were set up to collect radiosonde data for two intensive operations periods (IOPs). The project targeted one “wet episode”, between Aug 12-14, which followed a major rain event, and one “dry” episode, one week later, from Aug 21-23. A total of 147 quality controlled radiosonde soundings are contained in the final archive.
