Abstract:

NCEP/NCAR Arctic Marine Rawinsonde Archive, available via ftp, contains 17,659 marine rawinsonde reports for the region north of 65 degrees North. Its record extends from 1976 to 1996. These soundings have been extracted from the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) rawinsonde archive of the National Meteorological Center (NMC) (now the National Center for Environmental Prediction, or NCEP). The NCEP/NCAR Arctic Marine Rawinsonde Archive data set complements the Historical Arctic Rawinsonde Archive (HARA) for land stations and the Russian 'North Pole' drifting station archive.
