Tropical Pacific Wind Profiler Soundings, continuing from August 1985

| DOI: 10.5065/HDEW-GR10

This dataset contains vertical wind profiles for several tropical Pacific islands and TOGA COARE ships. All data were provided by NOAA's Aeronomy Lab, which operates several of the wind profiling radars. Other contributors include the Australian Bureau of Meteorology, which owns the Darwin radar, and TOGA COARE which provided data from ships and some land stations.

Data are available from as early as August 1985, and the Galapagos radar is still currently in operation. Please consult the inventory for full period-of-record information for each individual station.

Citation counts are compiled through information provided by publicly-accessible APIs according to the guidelines developed through the project. If journals do not provide citation information to these publicly-accessible services, then this citation information will not be included in RDA citation counts. Additionally citations that include dataset DOIs are the only types included in these counts, so legacy citations without DOIs, references found in publication acknowledgements, or references to a related publication that describes a dataset will not be included in these counts.
