The Electra Doppler Radar (ELDORA) is an airborne, dual beam, meteorological research radar developed jointly by NCAR and France's Centre de Recherches en Physique de L'Environnement Terrestre et Planetaire (CRPE). The ELDORA radar operated during T-PARC/TCS08 on the NRL-P3 aircraft for 23 research flights from 12 August to 4 October 2008. The data are in DORADE (Doppler Radar Exchange) sweep files tarred into 10 minute chunks.
