Multi-Network 5mb Vertical Resolution Sounding Composite

Interpolated 5hPa vertical resolution radiosonde data from research and operational sources during the SWEX campaign converted into a common format (EOL Sounding Composite format which is a columnar ASCII format). The composite includes data from radiosondes and dropsondes from locations around the southwestern United States. The radiosondes were released by NCAR/EOL (two sites), University of California, Santa Barbara (2 sites), San Jose State University (1 site), and the National Weather Service (three sites). Additionally, dropsondes released by NCAR/EOL from the NPS CIRPAS Twin Otter are included.
