CLAMPS-2 Doppler Lidar Wind Profile Data


This data set contains vertical profiles of horizontal wind speed and direction obtained at 10 minute intervals using the velocity-asimuth-display (VAD) technique from the Halo Streamline Doppler lidar that was part of the Collaborative Lower Atmospheric Mobile Profiling System 2 (CLAMPS-2) system that was deployed at the Cullman, Alabama airport for the Verification of the Origins of Rotation in Tornadoes EXperiment-Southeast (VORTEX-SE) Meso18-19 project. Included are the data in NetCDF format as well as quicklook imagery.

Archive note

There is a gap in this data set from 10-21 March 2019.
