FASTEX soundings from the Knorr (NOAA ship)

This dataset consists of sounding data from the Knorr, a NOAA ship (ID knr). Soundings were taken four times per day (00, 06, 12, and 18 UTC) except during selected IOPs when it was up to 16 times per day (90 min intervals). 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 10 second vertical intervals. Refer to the station README for details.
