NCAR ISS QC Radiosonde Data

This dataset contains data collected from 43 sondes using the ISS (Integrated Sounding Systems) during the Sierra Rotors Project in Owens Valley of California. The sondes were launched between 12 March and 29 April, 2004. The soundings have been run through ASPEN for quality control processing. Seven of the sondes experienced vertical downdrafts and were manually QC'd to preserve this data. These files are in the NCAR CLASS format. Please see the readme file for more information.
