NCAR MCASS QC Dropsonde Data

This dataset contains sonde data from the Multi-Channel Atmospheric Sounding System (MCASS), an AVAPS dropsonde system adapted for ballooon launches, during the Thunderstorm Electrification and Lightning EXperiment (TELEX). During TELEX, 37 dropsondes were launched from various locations around Oklahoma between May 13 and June 29, 2004. For detailed information on the data format and the quality control process, please see the attached readme file.
