HIWC_2022: Weather Radar Data


This dataset contains the weather radar (WXR) data collected during the High Ice Water Content 2022 (HIWC 2022) project, onboard the NASA DC-8 aircraft, that was based out of Jacksonville, Florida. The radar measurements contained in this dataset have been processed to remove the instrument properties from the airborne radar data and thereby produce scientific measures of the atmosphere and the HIWC conditions and the surrounding meteorological environment. There are 4 different file types (RadProd, bmp, list, and kmz) containing radar measurements with each file type containing all of the flights in one zip file.
