FP2 NASA/GSFC ALVICE Raman Lidar Data and Imagery



This data set contains water vapor mixing ratio profile and time series data from the NASA/GSFC Atmospheric Laboratory for Validation, Interagency Collaboration and Education (ALVICE) Raman lidar that was located at the PECAN Fixed PISA 2 (FP2) site at Greensburg, Kansas. The time series data and imagery are at 30 second resolution and the profile data and imagery are available at most times of radiosonde releases at the FP2 site. The data are in netcdf format and the imagery are in png format. Additional data and imagery (including depolarization and aerosol) are planned to be added to this data set later. If you order these data you will be notified when additions or new versions become available.
