Depolarization and Backscatter Unattended Lidar dataset (10 Minute Averages) [Intrieri, J. and B. McCarty]

Summary

The Depolarization and Backscatter - Unattended Lidar (DABUL) is a pulsed laser-radar operating at 523 nm wavelength. Range resolution is 30 m, and time resolution is as short as 1 s. This dataset contains three final products: Lidar returned-power netcdf data files, Linear depolarization ratio netcdf files, and cloud boundary mask of linear depolarization ratio. All of the final products have been averaged for 10 minutes.
