ELDORA Data User's Guide for TOGA COARE

The purpose of this technical note is to provide a concise User's Guide for the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) ELectra DOppler RAdar (ELDORA) data collected during the Tropical Ocean and Global Atmosphere Program Coupled Ocean-Atmosphere Response Experiment (TOGA COARE). This guide includes 1) a description of the radar system configuration, 2) characteristics of the sampling strategy, and 3) the ELDORA operations in TOGA COARE. The major portion of this User's Guide discusses the corrections applied to the data, the ELDORA data formats available, the data processing steps used, analysis routines available, and the means of obtaining data. Instructions for obtaining additional information are provided, including how to obtain assistance and how to access on-line documents concerning updates to data and/or calibrations. The appendices present a brief description of the data format and a summary of the coordinate transformation matrix.
