Barr, A., and C. Hrynkiw, 2004. BOREAS AFM-05 Level-1 Upper-Air Network Data, R[evision]1. Data set. Available on-line [http://www.daac.ornl.gov] from Oak Ridge National Laboratory Distributed Active Archive Center, Oak Ridge, Tennessee, U.S.A.

Revision Summary:

An alert data user called to our attention that the data file "aes_upper_air_l1_ifc2_96.dat" did not display correctly and had a gap in the data time series.

Evaluation of the data file revealed a stray binary record within the file. Data records were missing for site NSA-999-WTH02 on days July 29, July 30, and July 31 in the "aes_upper_air_l1_ifc2_96.dat" data file.

An uncorrupted version of the full data file was recovered from a backup source.

Because of the large file size, the file was subset by site name into 5 smaller files for user downloading convenience.
