NCAR Integrated Sounding System (ISS) 915MHz Wind Profiler NIMA Winds and RASS Data [NCAR/EOL]


This dataset contains 915 MHz wind profiler data collected by the three NCAR/EOL Integrated Sounding Systems (ISS) during North American Monsoon Experiment (NAME) that occured during the summer of 2004 in Mexico. The three ISS stations are Puerto Penasco (ISS2), Kino Bay (ISS3), and Los Mochis (ISS4). This dataset includes NIMA-processed Doppler moments data (.momnc), 30 minute consensus winds data (.windsnc) and Radio Acoustic Sounding System (RASS) virtual temperatures (.rassnc) in NetCDF format. These data have been quality controlled by the NCAR Improved Moments Algorithm (NIMA).
