Radiosonde sounding data for the comparison of Vaisala radiosondes. The comparison observations were performed by using RS92-SGPD with the receiving system MW31 on the aft wheelhouse and RS41-SGP with the existing receiving system MW41 on R/V Mirai. Because older version 3.61 of DigiCORA software was used during the cruises, all RS92 sounding data were simulated with DigiCORA v3.64 after the cruises.
