National Weather Service High Resolution Radiosonde Data (ESC Format) [NCAR-EOL]

The National Weather Service (NWS) routinely releases radiosondes at 00 and 12 UTC with occasional special releases at sites throughout the United States. This data set includes the quality controlled PECAN NWS soundings released at 22 sites throughout the Central Plains during the PECAN field phase (1 June to 16 July 2015). A total of 2055 quality-controlled, high vertical resolution (1-second) soundings are contained in the final PECAN data set.
