FABLE 1998 NCAR/ATD 915MHz Wind Profiler Winds and RASS Data

Summary

This dataset contains 915 MHz wind profiler data collected by the NCAR/ATD Integrated Sounding System (ISS) located at the WLEF-TV tower in Park Falls, Wisconsin during the Forest Atmosphere Boundary Layer Experiment (FABLE) in 1998. This dataset includes 30 minute consensus winds data and Radio Acoustic Sounding System (RASS) virtual temperatures in NetCDF format. These data files have been tarred into montly files for RASS and each of the profiler's operation modes (high and low). These data have not been quality controlled. 

Note: The latitude in the data files is indicated as being negative, while the actual location of the ISS was in Wisconsin. In addition, the latitudes and longitudes may be off slightly in general.
