The VORTEX High Resolution Surface Composite dataset contains data collected from ASOS, AWOS, and Oklahoma Mesonet observing stations in the VORTEX domain. All data have been converted to a common format and quality controlled by comparison to the hourly MAPS surface analyses. Please see the readme file for more details on QC procedures. This dataset does contain a mix of observation frequencies. Predominately, the ASOS and Oklahoma Mesonet observations are at 5-minute intervals and the AWOS observations are at 20-minute intervals.
