Hungary Upper Air (DSI-6320)Entry ID: gov.noaa.ncdc.C00560
Abstract: Hungary Upper Air is historical digital data set DSI-6320, archived at the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC). This is meteorological upper air data. This is a historical data set of upper air data for Hungary for 1962-90. It was received at NCDC from the Hungarian Meteorological Service. There were 2 reporting stations. DSI-6319 was included in the larger Comprehensive Aerological Data Set (CARDS) Upper Air data set, DSI-6305, which was quality controlled as it was assembled from many smaller data sets. DSI-6320 itself was not quality controlled at the NCDC. Most users should not request DSI-6320, but should instead opt for DSI-6305. Major parameters in upper air data sets are: pressure, temperature, relative humidity, and wind speed and direction.
Purpose: To make a wide range of climatic data available to researchers and the public.
