FASTEX soundings from Keflavic (Iceland)

This dataset consists of sounding data from Keflavic in Iceland (WMO 04018) which was operated by the Iceland Meteorological Office. Soundings were taken four times per day (00, 06, 12, and 18 UTC). These data were processed through automated and visual quality control. This dataset includes pressure, temperature, dew point, relative humidity, wind speed, wind direction, and altitude taken at 5 second vertical intervals up to 480 seconds, and 10 second vertical intervals after 480 seconds. Refer to the station README for details.
