Multi-Network Composite 5mb Vertical Resolution Sounding Composite

This data set contains a composite of upper air sounding data from all sources for the Verification of the Origins of Rotation in Thunderstorms Experiment-Southeast (VORTEX-SE) Meso18-19 project interpolated to 5hPa vertical levels. The composite includes a total of 5629 soundings from the following radiosonde systems: Mississippi State University (MSU; 129 soundings), the University of Louisiana at Monroe (ULM; 134 soundings), NOAA/ATDD (50 soundings), NOAA/NSSL (71 soundings), Texas A&M University (TAMU; 71 soundings), the University of Alabama Huntsville (190 soundings), the University of South Alabama (70 soundings), and the National Weather Service soundings from 13 stations (4914 soundings) in the region (twelve stations have 1 second vertical resolution data and one has mandatory/significant level vertical resolution data).
