HiWATER: Dataset of radiosonde sounding observations in Zhangye National climate observatory from Jun to Aug, 2012

Our project entrust the L band radiosonde sounding encrypt observations to Zhangye National Climate Observatory, and collect regular observation twice a day. The dataset contains three times one day at 8:00, 14:00, 20:00, which can support the remote sensing image atmospheric correction and atmospheric science research.

Observation Site:

Zhangye National Climate Observatory located in Shajing Town, west of ZhangYe. The coordinates of this site: 39°5′15.68" N, 100°16′39.11" E。

Observation Instrument:

China Meteorological Administration Operational L Band radiosonde system.

Observation Time:

The observation date last from 1 May, 2012 to 31 September, 2012, among which: Three times observations at 7:00-8:00, 13:00-14:00 and 19:00-20:00 during 1 June, 2012 to 31 August, 2012; twice at 7:00-8:00 and 19:00-20:00 during 2012-5-1 to 5-31 and 2012-9-1 to 9-31.

Accessory data:

Pressure, temperature, relative humidity, wind speed and wind direction profiles data.
