NOAA/ATDD Mobile Radiosonde Data

NOAA/ATDD utilized a mobile radiosonde system to release radiosondes at locations around northern Alabama during VORTEX-SE_2016 Intensive Operation Periods (IOPs). The choices for the locations and times of the releases were made in collaboration with other VORTEX-SE PIs. During all but one of the IOPs (IOP1 on 13-14 March) there were two separate NOAA/ATDD teams releasing radiosondes. This data set includes the 62 high vertical resolution (1-second), quality controlled NOAA/ATDD mobile soundings released for the VORTEX-SE_2016 field phase (13 March to 1 May 2016).
