One Minute Movies of NEXRAD Radar Reflectivity, Aircraft Position, and Aircraft-Relative Vertical Radar Reflectivity Cross-Sections

Summary

This dataset contains movies of the NSF/NCAR GV HIAPER, NASA DC-8, and DLR Falcon aircraft from the Deep Convective Clouds and Chemistry Project (DC3) field campaign. These are movies of single aircraft positions with radar plan view (lon/lat) and vertical sections of radar reflectivity and NCEP GFS analysis tropopause altitudes from left-to-right and rear-to-front of the flight direction.
