Gan ARM AMF Radiosonde L3 Data

This is one of the upper air data sets developed for the Dynamics of the Madden-Julian Oscillation (DYNAMO) 2011-2012 project. This data set includes 1068 high vertical resolution (2-sec) soundings from the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) M1 Airport (Addu Atoll), Gan Island, Maldives site, collected during the DYNAMO field campaign from 22 September 2011 through 9 February 2012. There are typically eight soundings per day at 00, 03, 06, 09, 12, 15, 18, and 21 UTC. This data set contains data from 22 September 2011 to 9 February 2012. After 9 February 2012 the Maldivian Meteorological Service continued to conduct releases once or twice per day through the end of the DYNAMO field phase. Those data will be part of a separate data set.
