NCAR HCR radar moments data

HIAPER Cloud Radar (HCR) 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 10Hz time resolution and a 19 m range resolution and are available in CfRadial format on a per flight basis. This data set contains all HCR variables at full resolution. A data set which contains only the primary HCR variables at a 2Hz resolution (and also data from the High Spectral Resolution Lidar (HSRL)) is available at the link provided in the "Related links" section below.
