NCAR HSRL lidar data, CfRadial

High Spectral Resolution Lidar (HSRL) data collected aboard the NSF/NCAR GV HIAPER (Gulfstream-V High-performance Instrumented Airborne Platform for Environmental Research) (N677F) during the SOCRATES (Southern Ocean Clouds, Radiation, Aerosol Transport Experimental Study) project from 15 January 2018 to 24 February 2018. The data are in CfRadial format and are available as tar archives. This data set contains all HSRL variables and is geared towards a more advanced lidar data user. A data set which contains only the primary HSRL variables at a 2Hz resolution (and also data from the HIAPER Cloud Radar (HCR)) which is geared towards the general user is available at the link in the "Related links" section below.
