NEAQS-ITCT 2004 HRDL Lidar data

HRDL Data Description


The HRDL Doppler lidar on the NOAA R/V Ronald H. Brown measured vertical profiles of horizontal wind speed, direction, and variance, and - for select measurement periods - vertical wind speed during the period 5 July through 13 August, 2004. Horizontal wind speed and direction profiles extending from the surface to about 2000 m ASL were reported approximately every 15 minutes at vertical resolutions ranging from 1 m near the surface to 15 m at the upper end of the altitude range. Data are available in ICARTT format and as time-height cross section color plots.

The ICARTT format is described in the ICARTT Data Management Working Group implementation plan. PDF file
