Summary
Abstract: U.S. Rawinsonde Observations (DSI-6201) is a historical digital data set archived at the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC). It contains upper air observations by rawinsonde from 1945 to 1990. Stations are mostly U.S. locations, but include a scattering of U.S. civilian and military sites around the globe. The parameters are observation time (year, month, day, hour) in GMT, number of pressure levels, level quality indicator, elapsed time since release (beginning with January 1, 1981), pressure of level (kilopascals and hundredths), geopotential height of level (whole meters), temperature of level (Deg. C and 10ths), relative humidity of level (whole %), wind direction of level (whole degrees), and wind speed of level (meters per sec.).

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