NCAR/EOL R/V Investigator ISS Raw Ceilometer Data and Plots (ASCII and binary)


This ceilometer data archive includes four tar files that contain: ascii text files, raw binary data files, and plots of density and gradient. These data were collected from the R/V Investigator during the SOCRATES field campaign between 2017-09-21 and 2018-02-21. These data have been reviewed for completeness and quality, but have not been corrected in any way.

To obtain more fully quality-controlled data (available only in netcdf format) please see the referenced dataset, NCAR/EOL R/V Investigator Quality-Controlled ISS Ceilometer Data (NetCDF).
