Triple LiDAR Event Data Captured During Spring Campaign (LID-UOU-UND-ARL-SPRING-TR)



This data set includes data from three lidars operated by University of Utah (UOU), University of Notre Dame (UND) and Army Research Lab (ARL) captured on 2013 May 15 and 16 for the purpose of data syncronization during theMountain Terrain Atmospheric Modeling and Observations (MATERHORN-X) project. Data is raw and has not undergone quality control. University of Utah and University of Notre Dame use the Halo Photonics Streamline Scanning Doppler LiDAR; data is in ASCII tab separated files and will have different extensions depending on the scanning strategy used. The Army Research Lab Leosphere 100S LiDAR data consists of zip files for each grouping of scans and includes ASCII tab separated data files ending in .rtd as well as .jpg scan images and two .ini files that specify configuration data. The time stamps are based off of UTC time for all the instruments for the MATERHORN-X data, unless it was stated otherwise. For more information please refer to the included README file.

Archive note

These files are compressed into one zip file for each institution per day. Select the corresponding filename for each.
