Short summary
Radiosonde observations (RAOBs) have provided the only long-term global in situ temperature measurements since 1958. In this study, we use Global Positioning System (GPS) radio occultation (RO) temperature data from 2006 to 2014 to characterize the inter-seasonal and interannual variability of temperature biases in the lower stratosphere. Results from this study also demonstrate the feasibility to use RO data to correct RAOB temperature biases for different sensor types.
