Multi-Network Composite Highest Resolution Radiosonde Data

This data set contains a composite of the highest vertical resolution (i.e. the “native resolution”) upper air sounding data from all sources for the Remote sensing of Electrification, Lightning, And Meso-scale/micro-scale Processes with Adaptive Ground Observations (RELAMPAGO) project in the EOL Sounding Composite (ESC) columnar ASCII format. The data set contains 2714 soundings including the Colorado State University (CSU) mobile radiosondes (105 soundings), the Center for Severe Weather Research (CSWR) mobile radiosondes (266 soundings), the University of Illinois (UIUC) mobile radiosondes (206 soundings), the DOE/ARM CACTI soundings from their two sites (1255 soundings), the INPE radiosondes from Sao Borja, Brazil (58 soundings), as well as the radiosondes from six locations around central Argentina that were operated by Servicio Meteorológico Nacional (SMN; 824 radiosondes).
