General Information

Name
FRAMZY1999_valdivia_rs: 3-hourly radiosoundings, launched onboard RV Valdivia, 58 soundings
Summary
From 1999-04-08 to 1999-04-24 a total of 58 radiosondes were launched from RV Valdivia 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 58 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 (FRAMZY1999_valdivia_rs_info).
