DC3 4 June 2012 West Texas Case

This dataset includes data over the region of interest from three platforms in support of a study of charge polarity for the Deep Convective Clouds & Chemistry Project (DC3). These platforms include the West Texas Mesonet, the West Texas Lightning Mapping Array (WTLMA), and the Weather Research and Forcasting (WRF) ensemble output subset over region. The West Texas Mesonet Observations during the period of interest are provided in a .csv file, the WTLMA files are H5 files with ‘events’ (VHF sources) and grouped ‘flashes’, and the WRF Ensemble files are in NetCDF format. See the readme for further information.
