Volume Structure

Note: This data set is now on FTP so references to CD-ROM are historic and no longer applicable.

The directory structure design of the Historical Arctic Rawinsonde Archive (HARA) provides a logical path for locating the rawinsonde data. The data are stored in directories organized by year and World Meteorological Organization (WMO) station identification number. There is a separate DOCUMENT directory containing information about the HARA data and data formats, a SOFTWARE directory containing both C and FORTRAN source code that can be compiled and executed to retrieve a subset of the sounding data from a HARA FTP directory, and a CATALOG directory containing a catalog of the HARA data available to date.
