NCAR/EOL 915 MHz Wind Profiler Consensus Winds, Moments, and RASS Data

Summary

This dataset contains 915 MHz wind profiler data collected by the NCAR/EOL Integrated Sounding System (ISS) aboard the R/V Knorr during the CLIMODE project. This dataset includes doppler moments data (prof915mom*), consensus winds data from both low and high mode profiler operation (prof915l* and prof915h*), and Radio Acoustic Sounding System (RASS) virtual temperatures (rass915*). These data are in daily tarred files containing individual files in netcdf format. The individual data files cover various time periods, but do not overlap or extend beyond the day indicated in the filename. These data have not been quality controlled.

Versions
  • 1.0 (2016-04-13)
  • 2.0 (2016-04-22):

    Replacing NIMA winds, moments, and RASS with raw data in NetCDF format. This is because NIMA processing does not do a good job with shipboard profiler data.

(Only the current version of the data is available to order. If you have questions about a prior version, please email us.)
