Title: Airborne Doppler Radar, Cloud Physics, and Flight Level Data from
Description:
Abstract:
Since 1985 the National Severe Storms Laboratory (NSSL) has conducted a series of airborne experiments to study mesoscale weather systems (warm season thunderstorms) in central United States, and more recently in the western Pacific. The data gathered during these experiments are archived in the following three data sets: Airborne Doppler Radar, Airborne Cloud Physics Data and P-3 Flight Level Data. Airborne Doppler Radar archives raw data from a 3m-wavelength Doppler radar aboard a NOAA P-3 aircraft. The Doppler radar measures reflectivity and the radial component of wind velocity. The Airborne Cloud Physics data comes from a Knollenberg Probe, a laser imaging device which measures precipitation particle size and type. The P-3 Flight Level data was gathered by the standard instrumentation on the P-3 aircraft. The data include measurements of pressure, temperature, dew point and wind and navigational information.
