Manus ARM Radiosonde Data (ESC Format)

The Department of Energy Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Climate Research Facility Tropical Western Pacific (TWP) site routinely releases radiosondes twice daily (00 and 12 UTC) from its site on Manus Island, Papua New Guinea (WMO ID 92044). This data set includes the soundings released during the CONvective TRansport of Active Species in the Tropics (CONTRAST) field phase (1 to 28 February 2014). A total of 59 quality controlled, high resolution (2-second) soundings are contained in the final CONTRAST data set.
