CSU-CHIVO data collected during the Experiment of Sea Breeze Convection, Aerosols, Precipitation and Environment (ESCAPE) field campaign, from 1 August to 25 September  2023. The Colorado State University C-band Hydrological Instrument for Volumetric Observation (CSU-CHIVO) performed cell tracking scans from La Porte Airport, TX, using frequent updates of range-height indicator (RHI) scans. These data are available as daily tar files and are provided by Stony Brook University.

The data files include processed radar variables including: noise-masked reflectivity and differential reflectivity corrected for rain attenuation and systematic biases, noise-masked dealiased radial velocity, specific differential phase, locations of target cells (latitude, longitude, radar range), and radar-echo classification.
