M2HATS: NCAR denoised MPD data


MicroPulse Differential Absorption Lidar (MPD) data in NetCDF format collected by the MPD 3 during the Multi-point Monin-Obukhov similarity horizontal array turbulence study (M2HATS). The data was simultaneously denoised and processed for temperature, water vapor and aerosol backscatter coefficient using the Poisson Total Variation technique. While two MPDs were deployed to Nevada, USA, for this field project, only data from MPD 3 was processed using this enhanced technique due to hardware issues on MPD 2. Data from both MPDs (processed with the standard technique) is linked as a companion dataset in the "Related links" section below.
