CPPA: Oak Ridge High Resolution Radiosonde Data (NWS Site Nashville, TN)

This data set contains the Climate Prediction Program for the Americas (CPPA) Oak Ridge high resolution radiosondes for the Coordinated Energy and Water Cycle Observation Project (CEOP). The data was collected from the Nashville,TN National Weather Service (NWS) upper air station and consists of six second vertical resolution profiles of pressure, temperature, wind speed, wind direction, relative humidity,and altitude from 01 October 2002 through 30 April 2007 and two second vertical resolution profiles from 21 May 2007 to 31 December 2009. The National Center for Atmospheric Research/Earth Observing Laboratory (NCAR/EOL) did perform quality control processing on this data set. Consult the README for more information.
