NCAR HCR radar and GV-HSRL lidar moments data

HIAPER Cloud Radar (HCR) and High Spectral Resolution Lidar (HSRL) moments data collected during the SOCRATES (Southern Ocean Clouds, Radiation, Aerosol Transport Experimental Study) project from 15 January 2018 to 24 February 2018. The data have a 2Hz time and 19m range resolution and are available in CfRadial format. This data set contains only the HCR and HSRL variables considered most useful for the general scientific user. Note that data is only provided when the two instruments were pointing roughly in the same direction. Data sets containing more variables and higher resolution data are available at the links provided in the "Related links" section below.
