Table 21.  Code table for pseudo-PREPBUFR aircraft profiles report types (last revised 8/22/2016).
 

Key:

     In the "Report Type" column, an "R" after the report type means this type is restricted with respect to redistribution outside of NCEP for some amount of time.

     In the "Description" and "Note" columns, observation types are designated as follows:
          q - specific humidity
          Tb - brightness temperature
          Tv - virtual temperature
          u, v - u- and v-components of wind
