General Information

ARKTIS1993_janmayen_rs: 12-hourly radiosoundings, launched at the meteorological station Jan Mayen, 48 soundings
From 1993-03-01 to 1993-03-24 a total of 48 radiosondes were launched at the meteorological station Jan Mayen (71.01N, -8.42E, North Atlantic) at intervalls of about 12 hours. Measured parameters are temperature, pressure and humidity. Wind direction and speed are determined by OMEGA navigation system.

The dataset consists of one archive file (.tar) which contains 48 data files, one for each sounding. The file format is 'ascii-text', the representation of the measured parameters is described in the 'readme'-file inside the .tar-archive and in the 'additional_info' entry (ARKTIS1993_janmayen_rs_info).
