CU DataHawk Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) Data

This data set contains in situ observations conducted by the University of Colorado, Boulder using the Data Hawk UAS during the IDEAL (Instabilities, Dynamics, and Energetics accompanying Atmospheric Layering) field campaign from 24 October to 11 November 2017. A total of 32 sorties with roughly 2-3 flights per sortie (lasting for a maximum sampling duration of 90 minutes) were flown to accumulate the data at two designated locations within the Dugway Proving Grounds (DPG). The launch locations can be found on the map in the accompanying readme file. These data are available in Matlab format. This is a large dataset. Please limit data orders to 5 days.
