NOAA/NWS (6-sec vertical levels) Rawinsonde

This data set contains rawinsonde profiles from the National Weather Service (NWS) station in San Juan, Puerto Rico archived during the Rain in Cumulus Over the Ocean (RICO) project. During RICO, rawinsondes were released twice daily at 00 and 12 UTC. The data files consist of vertical profiles of temperature, dew point, relative humidity, u and v wind components, total wind speed, wind direction, and altitude. The vertical resolution is six seconds. This data set has been quality contolled by the Joint Office of Science Support (JOSS). Consult the README for more information.
