Abstract:

The long-term goals of this project are the creation and maintenance of a data archive for the Interaction of Typhoon and Ocean Project ITOP field and supporting data sets. The three primary objectives of the project are to develop an ITOP project web site, to develop an ITOP Field Catalog for use in daily project planning in the field as well as in post-field analysis, and the development and long-term maintenance of a distributed ITOP data archive. Additional objectives include the collection and processing of dropsonde data sets from the United States Air Force USAF C-130 and Dropwindsonde Observations for Typhoon Surveillance near the TAiwan Region DOTSTAR Astra aircraft, leading to the development of a high-resolution radiosonde and dropsonde composite data set. A focused effort was made to generate a quality control processing system for the USAF C-130 Airborne eXpendable BathyThermograph AXBT data.
