Abstract

The University of Manchester radiosonde data contain measurements collected by a UFAM (Universities' Facility for Atmospheric Measurement) radiosonde at Swanage, Dorset, from the 19th of June 2005 to the 25th of August 2005. The dataset contains measurements of air temperature, air pressure, wind speed and wind direction, and relative humidity.
