Merged Selected GV Low Rate Flight-Level and Instrument Data and Interpolated GFS Analysis Variables


This dataset contains netCDF data files that hold selected variables from the NCAR Gulfstream V (GV) aircraft, instrument observations, and large-scale meteorological variables interpolated in space and time from the high-resolution NCEP Global Forecast System (GFS) 6-hourly global analyses. Variables are given at 1-second time resolution for the duration of the flight. The files also include a number of derived variables, such as equivalent latitude, potential temperature lapse rate (stability), temperature at the tropopause, etc.
