General Information

Name
ACSYS2003_aranda_rs: 3-hourly radiosoundings, launched onboard RV Aranda, 159 soundings
Summary
From 2003-03-30 to 2003-04-21 a total of 159 radiosondes were launched from RV Aranda at intervalls of about 3 hours. Measured parameters are temperature, pressure and humidity. Wind direction and speed are calculated from GPS positioning.
The dataset consists of one archive file (.tar) which contains 159 data files, one for each sounding. The file format is 'ascii-text', the representation of measured parameters is described in the 'readme'-file inside the .tar-archive and in the 'additional_info' entry (ACSYS2003_aranda_rs_info).
