Use the table below to find data files with pressure, temperature, humidity, and ozone. You can also find graphs of the ozone profiles and the predicted balloon trajectories. If you find an instrument package, email us the experiment number (found on the outside of the instrument package) and location where you found it. NOAA offers a $30 reward for mailing the instruments back to them in Boulder. Detailed information can be found on the instruments themselves. See the picture below to get an idea of what the instrument package looks like.

Click on Profiles "P" to get the ozone profile in partial pressure.
Click on Profiles "MR" to get the ozone profile in mixing ratio.
Click on Predicted Trajectory "Traj" to get the balloon path in air.
Click on Predicted Trajectory "Land" to get the estimated balloon landing site. Maps constructed using mapquest.

Attention Scientists: We are happy to share our data. If you use our data, please email us to let us know what you're doing. We would enjoy collaborating with you.

For approximate landing sites of all of our flights, check out our Google Maps page.

Below is Version 2 of our data - reprocessed to correct pressure registration errors in a different way than in Version 1. Our original data can be found here.
