MIT Upper Air is historical digital data set DSI-6308 at the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC). This is meteorological upper air data. This is a small, historical upper air data set that was created by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and archived at the NCDC. Data is global for the 5 year period 1958-1963. DSI-6308 was included in the much 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-6308 itself was not quality controlled at the NCDC. Most users should not request DSI-6308, but should instead opt for DSI-6305. Major parameters in upper air data sets are: pressure, temperature, relative humidity, and wind speed and direction.
