General Information

Name
KONTUR1981_meteor_rs: 6-hourly radiosoundings, launched onboard RV Meteor, 168 soundings
Summary
From 1981-09-16 to 1981-10-19 a total of 168 radiosondes were launched from RV Meteor 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 168 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 (KONTUR1981_meteor_rs_info).
