Multi-Network Composite Highest Resolution Radiosonde Data

This data set will contain a composite of the highest vertical resolution (i.e. the “native resolution”) upper air sounding data from all sources for the Southern Ocean Clouds, Radiation, Aerosol Transport Experimental Study (SOCRATES) project in the EOL Sounding Composite (ESC) columnar ASCII format. The data set currently contains 317 soundings including the dropsonde data (109 soundings) from the NSF/NCAR Gulfstream-V HIAPER aircraft and the radiosonde data from the RSV Aurora Australis (208 soundings). Radiosonde data from the R/V Investigator and operational sources will be added when processed.
