NCAR/EOL R/V Investigator 915 MHz Radar Wind Profiler Products
Quality-controlled 915 MHz profiler winds and vertical beam moments data operated by the NCAR/EOL Integrated Sounding System (ISS) for the SOCRATES / CAPRICORN field campaign. ISS operated a radar wind profiler on board the CSIRO RV Investigator. The primary voyage (CSIRO designation: IN2018_V01) for this deployment set sail from Hobart, TAS, Australia on 11 Jan 2018 into the Southern Ocean and concluded back in Hobart on 22 Feb 2018. A shakedown, test and training cruise (IN2017_E04) took place off the east coast of Tasmania Dec 7 - 11, 2017.
The LapXM moment data were processed by EOL software (IDL lapxm_ship_prelim.pro) to generate wind estimates corrected for ship motion, course and heading, partly based on the methods of Johnston (2014). These data were then quality-controlled through the NCAR Improved Moments Algorithm (NIMA). Some gaps in the NIMA-processed data have been filled in with the original LapXM-processed data.
This dataset currently includes a Preliminary Data Report that does not reference the NIMA quality-control.
