NCAR/EOL 1290MHz Wind Profiler NIMA Winds and RASS Data (West Profiler Site)

Summary

This dataset contains quality-controlled 1290 MHz wind profiler data collected by the NCAR/EOL Integrated Sounding System (ISS) that was located west of the double ridge at the West Wind Profiler Site during the Perdigao field project in 2017. This dataset includes consensus winds data and Radio Acoustic Sounding System (RASS) virtual temperatures in NetCDF format. These data have been quality controlled by the NCAR Improved Moments Algorithm (NIMA).
