Upper-air Measurements at Nuquí, Colombia

The dataset presented here contains sounding measurements collected at Nuquí, Colombia (77.26°W, 5.71°N) during the Organization of Tropical East Pacific Convection (OTREC) field campaign. A Vaisala DigiCORA MW41 Sounding System was used. The observations were carried out between 5th August and 25th September 2019, launching twice-daily soundings (00 UTC and 12 UTC) during regular days, and 4 soundings per day (00 UTC, 06 UTC, 12 UTC and 18 UTC) during Intensive Observing Periods (IOPs), for a total of 141 soundings.
