GAPP: Mount Bigelow High Resolution Radiosonde Data (NWS Site Tucson, AZ)

This data set contains the Coordinated Energy and Water Cycle Observation Project (CEOP) Enhanced Observing Period 3 and 4 (EOP-3 and EOP-4) Global Energy and Water Cycle Experiment (GEWEX) Americas Prediction Project (GAPP) Mount Bigelow High Resolution Rawinsonde Dataset. The data was collected from the Tucson,AZ National Weather Service (NWS) upper air station and consists of six second vertical resolution profiles of pressure, temperature, wind speed, wind direction, relative humidity,and altitude from 01 October 2002 thru 31 December 2004. The University Corporation for Atmospheric Research/Joint Office for Science Support (UCAR/JOSS) did perform quality control processing on this data set. Consult the README for more information.
