● Data observed by RS80 sensors
· Correction of ship body warming
Temperature and dew point temperature data near the surface (4.5 hPa from ship deck) were corrected by linear extrapolation using upper layer data, since these data were affected by ship body warming (cooling) at daytime (nighttime). Details for data processing and correction can be found in Yoneyama et al.(2002).

● Data observed by RS92 sensors
· Correction of ship body warming
Same as above
· Correction of Dry Bias
Humidity data observed by RS92 sensors contain dry bias mainly due to solar radiation error in daytime. We have corrected the humidity data observed by RS92 sensors using Yoneyama et al.(2008). method. RS92 sensors have been used since MR04-03 cruise.
Information about each radiosonde data are listed in the following table. It contains corrected sounding data, launch time, position, sensor information and calibration results for atomospheric pressure, air temperature and relative humidity. Calibration is conducted for every sensor prior to launch. Therefore, even raw data take in this calibration result. If the calibration result shows the positive value, it means that the calibrator showed the higher value than that of the sonde sensor. Filename of corrected data shows a sounding time (YYMMDDHH.***, where YY=year, MM=month, DD=day, and HH=hour) in UTC.
