This dataset contains MicroPulse Differential Absorption Lidar (MPD) data collected from five MPDs starting in March 2018. The insturments were deployed in several locations. It is an engineering dataset which contains a mix of testing and field campaign data and should only be used in collaboration with the NCAR lidar group for scientific analysis. The data is organized in separate daily tar files for each MPD and can be ordered for all MPDs together or separately for each instrument by setting the "Event" flag during the ordering process.
