GCIP/NESOB-96 Upper Air: ARM-CART 50 Mhz Profiler and RASS Data Set

Summary

This dataset contains vertical profiles of virtual temperature and wind speed and direction taken from the Department of Energy (DOE) Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Southern Great Plains (SGP) Clouds and Radiation Testbed (CART) Central Facility 50 Mhz Profiler and Radio Acoustic Sounding System (RASS) in Lamont, Oklahoma. Profiles are generated every hour. The vertical resolution of RASS virtual temperature is ~150 m. The vertical resolution of the high mode wind profiles is ~1000 m and for the low mode wind profiles it is ~300 m. See the Readme file for more details.
