CLAMPS2 Doppler Lidar VAD Data



Twenty-Four hour periods of CLAMPS2 Halo Streamline XR+ Doppler lidar data are contained in these files. The Doppler lidar conducts regular conical scans at a set elevation angle. These data are then passed through a typical VAD algorithm to retrieve horizontal wind speed and direction profiles. These data were collected during the Chequamegon Heterogeneous Ecosystem Energy-balance Study Enabled by a High-density Extensive Array of Detectors (CHEESEHEAD) project.  The lidar data are provided in netCDF. This dataset also includes PNG imagery files.
