GTS BUFR Radiosonde Data

This data set includes the BUFR format radiosonde data that were received via the GTS feed at NCAR/EOL for stations around the world. The data are a mix of the mandatory and significant level TEMP message data in BUFR format and the high vertical resolution (typically 1 or 2 second) BUFR data. Not all global stations transmit their data in BUFR format and some only transmit one or the other of the two BUFR forms.
