Low Rate (LRT - 1 sps) Navigation, State Parameter, and Microphysics Flight-Level Data - ICARTT format

Summary

This data set includes airborne measurements obtained from the NSF/NCAR C-130 aircraft (Tail Number N130AR) during the Front Range Air Pollution and Photochemistry Experiment (FRAPPE). This dataset contains low rate navigation, state parameter, and microphysics flight-level data in the International Consortium for Atmospheric Research on Transport and Transformation (ICARTT) format.

Data Quality final
Versions
  • 1.0 (2015-03-10)
  • 1.1 (2015-05-28):

    These data are exactly the same as the previous data with the addition of two Terrain Ht variables: SFC_SRTM, ALTG_SRTM.

  • 3.0 (2015-08-10):

    Versions 1.1 and 3 are exactly the same. This is just a correction so that the revision numbers will match between EOL and the NASA archive.

  • 4.0 (2019-06-17):

    Removal of variables from redundant sensors that are not typically released as a part of the final dataset.

    Updated PCORS resulting in pressures different on the order of 1 mbar and corrected wind speed components different on the order of 0.5 to 1 m/s, relative to previous versions.

    ALTG_SRTM and SFC_SRTM remain in version 4.0 as they were in version 3.0.

    Geo-potential height was added and DVALUE uses that instead of GPS altitude.

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