WY King Air Cloud Radar Data and Imagery [UWY]

Summary

This dataset includes data collected from the Wyoming Cloud Radar during RICO. The Wyoming Cloud Radar (WCR) is an observational system for the study of cloud structure and composition. It is installed principally on the Wyoming KingAir. Operating at 95 GHz (3 mm wavelength), the radar provides high-resolution measurements of reflectivity, velocity and polarization fields.

Data are available for the following days: Nov 26 (test data) Dec 7, 9, 10, 13, 14, 16, 17, 18, 19, and Jan 5, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 21, 23, 24.
