FASTEX soundings from La Coruna (Spain)

This dataset consists of sounding data from La Coruna in Spain (WMO 08001) which was operated by INM. Soundings were taken four times per day (00, 06, 12, and 18 UTC) for most of the FASTEX period. 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. Through 20 January these data were taken at 10 second intervals up to 300 s and 30 second intervals after 300 s. After 20 January, most soundings were 10 second resolution throughout. Refer to the station README for details.
