SWEX: ISS Wind Lidar Data Products


Leosphere Windcube Lidar products collected by the EOL Integrated Sounding System team during the Sundowner Wind EXperiment (SWEX) field campaign in Santa Barbara, CA. All data for a given scan type (i.e. PPI, RHI, VER, and DBS) are available for order as tarred, compressed files (.tar.gz). These include CF-Radial lidar parameters provided in individual netCDF files for each scan. 

Also available in this dataset are quality controlled, daily netCDF files of Velocity Azimuth Display (VAD) technique derived wind profiles and 30-minute consensus averaged wind profiles. These are also orderable as individual compressed, tar files (.tar.gz) by product type.

Please see included Data Report for detailed description of available products as well as quality control information.
