Iquique GAUS Radiosonde Data

During the VAMOS Ocean-Cloud Atmosphere-Land Study (VOCALS) campaign, an NCAR/EOL GPS Advanced Upper-Air Sounding (GAUS) system was deployed. This dataset is from the system located in Iquique, Chile, and the data collection was done from October 6 to November 15, 2008. A total of 192 high resolution radiosonde soundings were collected from the Iquique site.
