This dataset comprises of raw data of Doppler LiDAR range-height indicator (RHI) scans from the Chequamegon Heterogeneous Ecosystem Energy-balance Study Enabled by a High-density Extensive Array of Detectors (CHEESEHEAD) project, which intersect at the location of another Doppler LiDAR operating in vertical stare mode. The vertical stare LiDAR was set up right next to the SPARC trailer and ATMONSYS LiDAR at the WLEF tall tower site. This setup constitutes a virtual tower that provides high-frequency vertical wind speed measurements (not included in this dataset, please see the “SSEC SPARC Wind LiDAR at WLEF” dataset) and simultaneously facilitates the calculation of the averaged horizontal wind speed at multiple height levels above the vertical stare LiDAR.  This data set only contains raw data. Therefore, no processing or quality check is performed.
