Paposo Lower Site Radiosonde Data

During the VAMOS Ocean-Cloud Atmosphere-Land Study-Regional Experiment (VOCALS-REx) campaign, the Chilean Weather Office released radiosondes from the Paposo Lower Site between 17 October and 15 November 2008. This dataset contains 91 soundings (varying from 2-5 in a day). The vertical resolution is 10 seconds up to for the first 300 seconds, then 30 seconds from 300-900 seconds and 60 seconds after 900 seconds. The station used Vaisala RS80-15G radiosondes with GPS windfinding.
