Abstract

The data were collected by radiosonde at Reading by Convective Storm Initiation Project (CSIP) participants at the University of Reading between the 16th of June 2005 and the 25th of August 2005. Data include measurements of air temperature, relative humidity, wind speed and direction, and air pressure.
