General Information

Name
KONTROL1985_valdivia_rs: 3-hourly radiosoundings, launched onboard RV Valdivia, 123 soundings
Summary
From 1985-10-02 to 1985-10-18 a total of 123 radiosondes were launched from RV Valdivia at intervalls of about 6 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 123 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 (KONTROL1985_valdivia_rs_info).
