Short summary
Radiointerferometry on very long baselines (VLBI) is an important technique for detailed studies of Earth rotation variations. However, radio waves undergo significant delay in the atmosphere. In order to provide an optimal database for the analysis of the last continuous VLBI campaign between 28 Nov. and 12 Dec. 2017, all available meteorological observations and model data were compiled, forming an outstanding data set of the atmospheric conditions around the Geodetic Observatory Wettzell.
