FP5 AERIoe Thermodynamic Profile Retrieval Data

Summary

This data set contains temperature and water vapor mixing ratio profile retrievals at five minute intervals (using the AERIoe algorithm) from the AERI (Atmospheric Emitted Radiance Interferometer) located at the PECAN Fixed PISA 5 site in Brewster, Kansas. The profiles cover the lowest 3km or up to cloud base. The AERI instrument was provided by ARM and Dave Turner (NOAA/NSSL) provided this processed data set.

Archive note

This version utilizes Release 2.2 of the AERIoe algorithm. The main improvements over the previous version (Release 1.5) are: 1) Logic to prevent superadiabatic profiles above some minimum altitude; 2) Inclusion of additional surface met observations and the RAP weather forecast model above 4km to better constrain the solution; and 3) several minor bug fixes. This version was released on 23 August 2016.
