National Weather Service High Resolution Radiosonde Data (ESC Format)

This data set includes the quality controlled GRAINEX NWS soundings released at nine sites throughout the Upper Midwestern United States during the GRAINEX field phase (30 May - 31 July 2018). Two stations in the region were only available at mandatory/significant level resolution (KDVN - Davenport, IA and KTOP - Topeka, KS) and are available in a separate data set. A total of 1173 quality-controlled, high vertical resolution (1-second) soundings are contained in the final GRAINEX data set.
