Radiosonde observation in 2008

Radiosonde observation in 2008

This data is based on the modified radiosonde observation data of 2008 used by Chen et al. 2016, Chen et al. 2011 and Chen et al. 2013. The vertical resolution of the processed atmospheric wind speed, wind direction, temperature, relative humidity and pressure is 20m. The data of three observation stages in 2008 are processed, namely iop1, IOP2 and iop3. Iop1 started from February 25, 2008 to March 19, 2008, IOP2 from May 13, 2008 to June 12, 2008, and iop3 from July 7, 2008 to July 16, 2008.
