This data set contains the water vapor mixing ratio and aerosol scattering ratio measured by the NASA LASE (Lidar Atmospheric Sensing Experiment) on-board the NASA DC-8 aircraft during several PECAN IOPs from 28 June to 16 July 2015 . Also included are full flight images of water vapor (linear and log scales) and aerosols. Data and imagery are available for 28 June and 1, 5, 6, 7, 9, 11, 12, 14, 15, and 16 July 2015. These data are in the NASA Ames ASCII format.
