GTS Mandatory/Significant Level Sounding Data (ESC Format)

This data set includes the quality controlled GTS soundings for two High Ice Water Content (HIWC) Radar 2018 observational periods and regions. The first was around Florida for the period of 30 July to 12 August 2018 and the second was across southern California, Baja, and Hawaii for the period 11-30 August 2018. This data set includes only those stations in the regions for which high vertical resolution data were not available. Those stations with high resolution data are available in a separate data set. A total of 281 quality-controlled, mandatory and significant level resolution soundings are contained in the final data set.
