MIPS Surface Meteorological Data [University of Alabama-Huntsville]


This data set contains surface meteorological data collected coincident with the MIPS profiling system during the PLOWS field seasons. Two different instrumentation setups were utilized as described in the readme file. The temporal resolution is 1 second for IOP10, IOP14, IOP17 and IOP18 and 5 second for IOP 1,2,4,5,7,8,9,12,13,19,21,23 and 24. The data were provided by the University of Alabama-Huntsville. Both systems are in a comma-delimited ascii format, but the parameters included differ.
