TitleMobile mesonet data from the VORTEX and SUBVORTEX projects
AbstractThe dataset contains mobile mesonet data from the Verification of the Origins of Rotation in Tornadoes Experiment in 1994–1995, sponsored by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and National Science Foundation. The dataset also includes mobile mesonet data from the smaller SUBVORTEX projects led by the National Severe Storms Laboratory in 1997, 1998, and 1999.
