Daily Rawinsondes from San Cristobal Island (Galapagos), December 1990-December 1998

Daily rawinsonde data for San Cristobal Island (Galapagos) were keyed from the original hardcopy forms as part of NCDC's Climate Modernization Database Program and then sent to DSS for post-processing and quality control. The overall period of record is December 1990 to December 1998, but there are missing months. Generally, soundings are available once-daily, but there are occasionally two per day, and there are days with no soundings at all. The data are presented in two sets: a conventional stack of mandatory and significant levels, and a stack of level data at high-resolution (levels every 10 seconds up to 5 minutes, then every 30 seconds up to 15 minutes, then every minute).
