CSU Mobile Radiosonde Data

This data set contains vertical profiles of pressure, temperature, relative humidity, wind speed, and wind direction from the Colorado State University (CSU) mobile radiosonde system during the VORTEX-SE 2017 field season. CSU released a total of 32 radiosondes from locations around northern Alabama on 21, 25-28 March and 3, 5, 27, 28, and 30 April and 1 May 2017. These data are available in either the Vaisala RS-41 EDT columnar ASCII format or the columnar ASCII EOL Sounding Composite (ESC) Format.
