Mesoscale Parallel Experiment Log

The purpose of this experiment is to test the impact of the loss of 20% of North American rawinsonde data above 40000 ft. It is proposed to replace 20% of NA raob data with detailed vertical information from aircraft (equipped with moisture sensors) during ascent/descent. Under this scenario data above 40K feet would be lost at these locations because commercial aircraft do not fly above this level.
