Convection Waves: SabreLiner Photography Cloud Videos


This dataset consists of mpg files from video tape (VHS) from flights of the NCAR SabreLiner aircraft during the Convection Waves (CONV_WAVES) experiment. This dataset contains forward-looking, right-looking, and left-looking video.

WARNING: This is a big dataset. Each mpg file is about 1.3 GB. Each order can contain a maximum of 16 GB of data. For very large orders, it may be preferable for you to access these data via a loaner external hard drive. Please contact Steve Williams (sfw AT ucar DOT edu) for these very large orders.
