Data from five MicroPulse Differential Absorption Lidars (MPDs) collected during MPD-NetDemo field campaign. The data was collected at the US Department of Energy’s Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) facility Southern Great Plains (SGP) field site. This is an engineering dataset. Several problems remain in the data and it should be used with caution and in collaboration with the NCAR lidar group for scientific analysis (see contact below).
