NCAR/EOL ISS Ceilometer Data


This dataset contains quality-controlled ceilometer data collected by the NCAR/EOL Integrated Sounding System (ISS) located at the Farm Field site (ISS2) during the Stable Air Variability and Transport (SAVANT) field campaign. These data were collected by a Vaisala CL-51 ceilometer and are available in both raw ASCII format and as level 3 data in NetCDF format generated by Vaisala's BLView software. These data have been quality controlled. In addition, both 4-hour and daily plots of these data are available for download within this dataset. 

When requesting data to download, please select the format you desire from the dropdown menu (data in ASCII or NetCDF, or plots in PNG).
