NCAR/EOL R/V Investigator NIMA Quality-Controlled 915 Profiler Data

This dataset includes quality-controlled 915 MHz profiler winds and vertical beam moments data. NCAR/EOL operated a radar wind profiler on board the CSIRO RV Investigator as part of a deployment of an Integrated Sounding System (ISS) for the SOCRATES / CAPRICORN field campaign. The primary voyage (CSIRO designation: IN2018_V01) for this deployment set sail from Hobart, TAS, Australia on 11 Jan 2018 into the Southern Ocean and concluded back in Hobart on 22 Feb 2018. A shakedown, test and training cruise (IN2017_E04) took place off the east coast of Tasmania Dec 7 - 11, 2017. The LapXM moment data were processed by EOL software (IDL lapxm_ship_prelim.pro) to generate wind estimates corrected for ship motion, course and heading, partly based on the methods of Johnston (2014). These data were then quality-controlled through the NCAR Improved Moments Algorithm (NIMA). Some gaps in the NIMA-processed data have been filled in with the original LapXM-processed data. This dataset currently includes a Preliminary Data Report that does not reference the NIMA quality-control. An updated report will be added to the dataset once finished.
