[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Hong Kong Upper Air is historical digital data set DSI-6318, archived at the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC). This is meteorological upper air data. This is a historical data set of upper air data for 1956-90, for the old British colony of Hong Kong. DSI-6318 was included in the larger Comprehensive Aerological Data Set (CARDS) Upper Air data set, DSI-6305, which was quality controlled as it was assembled from many smaller data sets. DSI-6318 itself was not quality controlled at the NCDC. Most users should not request DSI-6318, but should instead opt for DSI-6305. Major parameters in upper air data sets are: pressure, temperature, relative humidity, and wind speed and direction.

Purpose: To make a wide range of climatic data available to researchers and the public.
