ARM Radio Acoustic Sounding System (RASS) (915MHz) [ARM]

Summary

This data set contains hourly vertical profiles of virtual temperature and vertical wind velocity retrieved from the Department of Energy (DOE) Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Southern Great Plains (SGP) Radio Acoustic Sounding System collocated with the 915 MHz Radar Wind Profilers at the ARM SGP Central Facility and the three ARM SGP Intermediate Facilities. It also contains the 915 MHz profiler data from the Atmospheric Boundary Layer Experiement (ABLE) project in the Walnut River watershed in Kansas.
