Multi-Network Composite Highest Resolution Upper Air 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 Deep-Propagating Gravity Wave Experiment (DeepWave). The composite includes 853 soundings from five sources around New Zealand and the surrounding ocean:

  • NSF/NCAR Gulfstream-V dropsondes (282 soundings)

  • Australian Bureau of Meteorology radiosondes from Hobart (137 soundings) and Macquarie Island (140 soundings)

  • NIWA (National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research) radiosondes from Haast, New Zealand (51 soundings)

  • DLR radiosondes from Lauder, New Zealand (98 soundings)

  • NCAR/EOL radiosondes from Hokitika, New Zealand (145 soundings)
