Multi-Network Composite Highest Resolution Radiosonde Data

High vertical resolution radiosonde data from research and operational sources during the Sundowner Winds Experiment (SWEX) campaign converted into a common format (EOL Sounding Composite format which is a columnar ASCII format) are included in this dataset. 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), National Weather Service (three sites), and the US Air Force (one site). Additionally, dropsondes released by NCAR/EOL from the NPS CIRPAS Twin Otter are included.
