ESCAPE: Stony Brook University Mobile X-band Phased Array Radar (SKYLER II) Data


Stony Brook University Mobile X-band Phased Array Radar (SKYLER II) data are included in this dataset. During the Experiment of Sea Breeze Convection, Aerosols, Precipitation and Environment (ESCAPE) field campaign in Houston (Jensen et al.,2022), the Stony Brook University Mobile Radar Truck installed an X-band dual polarization phased array radar named SKYLER II and was deployed closely coordinated with the University of Oklahoma mobile X-band radars (RaxPol and PX-1000). SKYLER II was operated for 13 deep convection days between May 31, 2022 to June 22, 2022. SKYLER II performed a rapid volume scan of a 90 degree azimuth sector approximately every 12 seconds for each deployment.

The netCDF data are provided in tar.gz files by day. This is a large dataset.  Please order only the days needed.
