Colombo, Sri Lanka Radiosonde L3.0 Data

This dataset includes 258 high vertical resolution soundings from Colombo, Sri Lanka (WMO 43466) collected during the DYNAMO field campaign for 2011-12. Soundings were typically released four times daily (00, 06, 12 and 18 UTC) from 30 September 2011 to 6 December 2011. From 7-28 December soundings were released at most once per day at 12 UTC. The station utilized Meisei RS-06G radiosondes. These soundings were provided by JAMSTEC. This L3.0 version of the data set was released 15 October 2013 and changes include the application of PDF matching and correction for the relative humidity discontinuity at the 0C level. These adjustments were applied by JAMSTEC.
