Low Rate (LRT - 1 sps) Navigation, State Parameter, and Microphysics Flight-Level Data [NCAR/EOL]

Summary

This data set includes airborne measurements obtained from the NCAR Research Aviation Facility (RAF) Gulfstream V (HIAPER) aircraft (Tail Number N677F) during the HIAPER Pole-to-Pole Observations (HIPPO) of Carbon Cycle and Greenhouse Gases Study Phase 3 (HIPPO-3) project. This dataset contains low rate navigation, state parameter, and microphysics flight-level data in netCDF format.

  • 3.0 (2011-05-17):

    Component files were updated Dec 2012 by Pavel to fix WI/WIC confusion. New vars were merged with nc files and ready to release 20 Feb 2013. Changes are described in /scr/raf/Prod_Data/HIPPO-1/V4_20130220/PM report - Data Changes Notifications 12-2012.docx

  • 4.0 (2016-11-10):
    The NCAR/EOL Research Aviation Facility has recently completed a review and upgrade of its existing algorithms for data processing to incorporate recent improvements that have become available for specific instruments. HIPPO-3 LRT data have been reprocessed and rereleased with these new upgrades. For more info see the Appendix to HIPPO-III Project Manager's Report: Reprocessing
(Only the current version of the data is available to order. If you have questions about a prior version, please email us.)
