TitleThermodynamic observations in supercell storms obtained from pseudo-Lagrangian drifters in spring 2017
AbstractThe dataset contains the first-ever thermodynamic observations obtained above ground within supercell thunderstorms using balloonborne probes as pseudo-Lagrangian drifters. Each probe is carried by a pair of balloons until one of the balloons is jettisoned; the remaining balloon and probe act as a pseudo-Lagrangian drifter that is drawn through the storm. The data are from three demonstration deployments in supercell storms in Oklahoma and Kansas during May 2017.
