CLAMPS-1 Doppler Lidar Wind Profile Data
This data set contains vertical profiles of horizontal wind speed and direction obtained at 10 minute intervals using the velocity-asimuth-display (VAD) technique from the Halo Streamline Doppler lidar that was part of the Collaborative Lower Atmospheric Mobile Profiling System 1 (CLAMPS-1) system that was deployed at the Courtland, Alabama airport for the Verification of the Origins of Rotation in Tornadoes EXperiment-Southeast (VORTEX-SE) Meso18-19 project. Included are the data in NetCDF format as well as quicklook imagery.
There is a gap in this data set from 29 December 2018 to 15 January 2019 as the lidar had frozen and repair was delayed due to the government shutdown.
