CLAMPS1 Doppler Lidar VAD Data



These files contain 24 hour periods of data collected from the CLAMPS1 Halo Streamline XR Doppler lidar. 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 format. This dataset also include PNG imagery files.
