Attention Scientists: All data posted on this website are preliminary. 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.

Use the table below to find data files with pressure, temperature, humidity, and ozone from our ozonesonde launches. 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. We offer a $30 reward for mailing the instruments back to us at Hokkaido University. Detailed information can be found on the instruments themselves. See the picture below to get an idea of what the instrument package looks like.
