Comprehensive Aerological Data Set (CARDS) Core Subset (DSI-6304)
Entry ID: gov.noaa.ncdc.C00502

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Comprehensive Aerological Data Set (CARDS) Core Subset is historical digital data set DSI-6303, archived at the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC). This is meteorological upper air data from all over the world. CARDS data is primarily radiosonde and pibal data. DSI-6304 is a static subset of the full, ongoing CARDS data set. During a past NCDC project, the data that is now DSI-6304 was extracted from CARDS. Major parameters in upper air data are: pressure, temperature, relative humidity, wind speed and direction, and height. NCDC maintains this data set in archive but no longer updates nor actively distributes it. It has been superseded by the Integrated Global Radiosonde Archive (IGRA) (C00616).

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