           SUBJECT:        Monthly Raob Data Report of Manual Quality Control


The Raob Report for June, compiled from the Raob Recap statements in the
SDM logs, which does not necessarily include data that were rejected by
automated computer generated quality control, indicates the following:

(1)  Reports from 25 U.S. stations (Blocks 72 and 74) were cited at least
once; 7 were cited at least twice; and 2 were cited at least three times.
Of those, the following were cited more than three times or had two or more no
reports:

                    STATION__ DEL BAS COR XRP EFL SHO TOTAL
                    NONE

(2)  Reports from 40 stations in blocks 04, 70, 71, 76, 78 and 91 were cited
at least once; 22 were cited at least twice; and 15 were cited at least three

Several Mexican and Pacific stations and one Caribbean station reported equipment
failures.  Otherwise, deletions for TAP were mainly for suspect height observations,
and deletions for PPG were for superadiabatic lapse rates.  GCM had a few deletions 
related to suspect winds.  The deletions for ADQ were for superadiabatic lapse 
rates. 

* The total differs from the sum of the itemized citations
  because of multiple citations in the same raob(s).


Citation Codes Key:
DEL  All or part of the raob was flagged for deletion.
BAS  A baseline hgt/station press error was corrected or purged.
COR  At least one correction other than baseline was made.
XRP  Station sent no report at all when one was required.
EFL  Equipment failure (codes 10142, 10144, 10158, etc.)
SHO  Raob flight was short; ie, to less than 400 mb.
