AMIE-Gan MMS Sondes
15 June 2011 - 8 April 2012
Lead Scientist: Chuck Long
AMIE-Gan operations were unexpectedly discontinued on February 8, 2012. The Maldivian Meteorological Service (MMS) Office on Gan Island graciously resumed their sonde launches ahead of time to help gather the important atmospheric profiles at least for the campaign, and to share the high resolution sonde data with us. They have done so in the form of the "dc3db" raw Digicora files for each sonde that requires processing to match ARM sonde files.
