GALE: Electra Photography Cloud Videos
This dataset consists of mpg files from video tape (VHS) from flights of the NCAR Electra aircraft during the Genesis of Atlantic Lows Experiment (GALE). Included is rare subcloud layer footage of an extreme cold air outbreak on January 28, 1986. This dataset contains forward 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.
