RS92 GRUAN Data Product (v2) - Boulder 2011

Abstract:
This product is based on Vaisala RS92 radiosonde measurements of temperature, humidity, wind and pressure that have been processed following the requirements of the GCOS Reference Upper Air Network (GRUAN) that were described in Immler et al. [2010]. The GRUAN data product file comply to the requirements of GRUAN in particular by providing a full uncertainty analysis. The uncertainty is calculated according to the recommendations of the “Guide for expressing uncertainty in measurement” [GUM2008]. The total uncertainty is assessed from estimates of the calibration uncertainty, the uncertainty of corrections and statistical standard deviations. Corrections are applied such that the data is bias free according to current knowledge.

  • processStep:
    • This metadata record was created automatically as a representation of the bulletin declaration found in WMO # 9 Volume C1. Other references were used in the process, including WMO References such as WMO # 9 Volume A, WMO # 386 Manual on the GTS and WMO # 306 Manual on Codes. Other elements of information were also collected or created for the purpose of the GTS Metadata Generation. This work, as well as the creation of the representation of the WMO references was done by Deutscher Wetterdienst (DWD) on a "best effort" basis.
