During the SWALES experiment in the autumn of 1993, the Sonic Buoy was deployed twice as part of an array of moored instrumentation. On the Sonic Buoy, meteorological data were acquired by the Formatter Processor from the Sonic and Multimet Processors' output data streams. These data were combined and logged as 10 minute means on the Formatter F1ashcard memory; a selection of the data was also telemetered in near real time via the polar orbiting ARGOS and geostationary METEOSAT satellite data collection systems. This data report briefly describes the processes employed in acquisition of the data. It then describes the processes for the recovery of the data from the various source media, the quality control procedures applied and, finally, the resulting output data files. Appendices include comprehensive details of the software developed for the above processes and of the formats used for the input and output data.
