METCRAX QC Radiosonde Data

The Meteor Crater Experiment (METCRAX) is a 3-year meteorological research program whose purpose is to investigate the structure and evolution of temperature inversions or cold-air pools that form on a daily basis in topographic basins and valleys. For this study NCAR/EOL deployed one Integrated Sounding System (ISS) approximately 35 miles East of Flagstaff AZ and 3 miles North East of an impact crater known as Meteor Crater. EOL also set up four surface towers in the base of the crater. For more information on these towers please visit, Forty-nine radiosonde launches were performed from the ISS site between October 7 and October 31, 2006.
