Oswego Sounding Data

SUNY Oswego launched 28 soundings (2 failed due to broken instrument/operator error) from the north deck of the Shineman Science Center on the SUNY Oswego campus (43.46N, 76.54W, 107m MSL) for the Lake-Effect Electrification (LEE) project during September 2022 through March 2023. Most (25/28) sondes were of the iMet-3050A type while 3 of the sondes were Vaisala RS41 sondes. Please see the LEE Field Catalog’s Reports section Oswego Sounding Mission Summaries (http://catalog.eol.ucar.edu/lee/344061/files) for more details of each launch. We launched 3 sondes in support of Project IMPACTS (Investigation of Microphysics and Precipitation for Atlantic Coast-Threatening Snowstorms). Please see the readme documentation for more information.
