NASA ER-2 Quality Controlled Dropsonde Data (NCAR/ATD)

Dropsonde data from the NASA ER-2 research aircraft, collected by the NCAR Airborne Vertical Atmospheric Profiling System (AVAPS) during the Cirrus Regional Study of Tropical Anvils and Cirrus Layers - Florida Area Cirrus Experiment (CRYSTAL-FACE). A total of 47 quality-controlled soundings in the NCAR CLASS format are contained in the final dropsonde data set.
