ARM Raman Lidar Data



This data set contains 10 minute resolution precipitable water vapor along with vertical profiles of water vapor mixing ratio, relative humidity, linear depolarization ration, and aerosol scattering ratio. from the Department of Energy (DOE) Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Southern Great Plains (SGP) Raman Lidar (RL). The RL is located at the ARM Central Facility near Lamont, Oklahoma. This data set covers the period from 15 May to 25 June 2002. The data are in netCDF format.

Data replaced with reprocessed data to account for the near-field-of view (overlap) correction more accurately - 29 September 2003.
