National Weather Service High Resolution Radiosonde Data (ESC Format)

This data set includes the quality controlled GTS soundings for two High Ice Water Content (HIWC) Radar 2018 observational periods and regions. The first was the southeastern United States for the period of 29 July to 13 August 2018 and the second was across the Pacific Ocean for the period 10-31 August 2018. This data set includes only those stations in the regions for which high vertical resolution data were available. Those stations with the GTS mandatory and significant level data are available in a separate data set. A total of 375 quality-controlled, mandatory and significant level resolution soundings are contained in the final data set.
