Ship-borne radiosonde observation data from Korea Polar Prediction System (KPOPS)

Data from the Yopp-endorsed project KPOPS are now available.

The radiosonde balloon sounding observations were performed from 5 August 2019 to 17 September 2019 to obtain the Arctic Ocean high-resolution atmospheric vertical profiles along the IBRV Araon cruise track at four times daily intervals (00, 06, 12, 18UTC). The data include vertical profiles of temperature, humidity, pressure, wind speed and wind direction up to about 30km. The data have been used for the data assimilation of the KOPRI Arctic weather forecast system.
