General Information

Name
ACSYS2003_polarstern_rs: 3-hourly radiosoundings, launched onboard RV Polarstern, 138 soundings
Acronym
ACSYS2003_polarstern_rs
Summary
From 2003-03-30 to 2003-04-21 a total of 138 radiosondes were launched from RV Polarstern at intervalls of about 3 hours. Measured parameters are temperature, pressure and humidity. Wind direction and speed are calculated from GPS positioning.
