Daily Rawinsondes from San Cristobal Island (Galapagos), December 1990-December 1998

| DOI: 10.5065/KES7-2D42

Daily rawinsonde data for San Cristobal Island (Galapagos) were keyed from the original hardcopy forms as part of NCDC's Climate Modernization Database Program and then sent to DSS for post-processing and quality control. The overall period of record is December 1990 to December 1998, but there are missing months. Generally, soundings are available once-daily, but there are occasionally two per day, and there are days with no soundings at all. The data are presented in two sets: a conventional stack of mandatory and significant levels, and a stack of level data at high-resolution (levels every 10 seconds up to 5 minutes, then every 30 seconds up to 15 minutes, then every minute).

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.
