West Texas Mesonet Radiosonde Data

This dataset includes high vertical resolution (2 sec) soundings from the West Texas Mesonet Reese Center, TX site collected during the VORTEX2 field campaigns for 2009 and 2010. There are 2 soundings for the 2009 season (15 May 18:16 and 13 June 17:44, 2009) and 3 soundings for the 2010 season (18 May 18:39, 6 June 19:24, and 14 June 17:32, 2010) . These data were provided by Texas Tech University and converted to the EOL Composite (ESC) format. The station used Vaisala radiosondes with LORAN-C windfinding.
