Summary
Abstract: U.S. Rawinsonde is digital data set DSI-6301, archived at the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC). DSI-6301 consists of upper air rawinsonde data from upper air stations operated by the United States of America around the world, from 1946 to the present day. This data set is one of a large family of NCDC upper air data sets that are collectively called CARDS, or Comprehensive Aerological Data Sets. CARDS data includes the following purely meteorological parameters: clouds and obscuration, pressure, geopotential height, temperature, relative humidity, dew point depression, and wind speed and direction. CARDS data also includes a large number of technical specifications and quality control parameters.

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