GCIP/NESOB-97 Upper Air: ARM-CART 915 Mhz Profiler and RASS Data Set


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) 915 Mhz Profilers and Radio Acoustic Sounding Systems (RASS) in Lamont, Oklahoma (Central Facility), Beaumont, Kansas (Beaumont Intermediate Facility), Medicine Lodge in Barber County Kansas, and Meeker in Lincoln County Oklahoma. Profiles are generated every hour. The vertical resolution of RASS virtual temperature is 100 m. The vertical resolution of the high mode wind profiles is 200 m and for the low mode wind profiles it is 60 m. See the Readme file for more details.
