NRC Convair 580 Aircraft State Parameters

This data set contains atmospheric and aircraft state parameters from over 30 instruments that were operated by the National Research Council of Canada on-board the NRC Convair-580 aircraft during ICICLE (In-Cloud ICing and Large-drop Experiment). The atmospheric state data include 3D winds, temperature, pressure, and relative humidity. The aircraft state data include aircraft positions, roll and pitch angles. The data are provided in a NetCDF format together with a data guide and html quick-looks of selected variables for easier browsing.
