Title: Quality Controlled Radiosonde Profile from MC3E

Abstract

The sonde-adjust VAP produces data that corrects documented biases in radiosonde humidity measurements. Unique fields contained within this datastream include smoothed original relative humidity, dry bias corrected relative humidity, and final corrected relative humidity. The smoothed RH field refines the relative humidity from integers - the resolution of the instrument - to fractions of a percent. This profile is then used to calculate the dry bias corrected field. The final correction fixes a time-lag problem and uses the dry-bias field as input into the algorithm. In addition to dry bias, solar heating is another correction that is encompassed in the final corrected relative humidity field. Additional corrections were made to soundings at the extended facility sites (S0*) as necessary: Corrected erroneous surface elevation (and up through rest of height of sounding), for S03, S04 and S05. Corrected erroneous surface pressure at Chanute (S02).
