National Weather Service High Resolution Radiosonde Data (ESC Format)

This data set includes the quality controlled NWS soundings released at five sites throughout the Midwestern United States during the SAVANT (Stable Atmospheric Variability and Transport) field phase (15 September to 15 November 2018). One station in the region was only available at mandatory/significant level resolution (KDVN - Davenport, IA) and is available in a separate data set. A total of 648 quality-controlled, high vertical resolution (1-second) soundings are contained in the final SAVANT data set.
