VOCALS: NOAA R/V Ron Brown Lidar Data

Summary

This NOAA R/V Ron Brown Lidar dataset consists of two netCDF files which contain lidar data collected from the Research Vessel Ron Brown during the VOCALS 2008 project. The vocalsRhbLidarWP.nc file contains vertical profiles of horizontal wind and the vocalsRhbLidarVertStats.nc file has vertical profiles of vertical velocity turbulence (and higher statistical moments) and aerosol back scatter signal strength (snr). See the readme for more information on the file structure for each file.
