High Resolution Temperature Profile

High resolution (20cm) temperature profile, just above the tropopause. Boxes marked with letters (a ...g) contain examples of sheets. Two close-ups of sheets "b" and "e" are displayed with the three profiles measured on the main gondola. Ongoing mixing is clearly present in the sheet "b".
