General Information

Name
FRAMZY2002_aranda_rs: 3-hourly radiosoundings, launched onboard RV Aranda, 136 soundings
Summary
From 2002-03-04 to 2002-03-23 a total of 136 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 136 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 (FRAMZY2002_aranda_rs_info).
