OU/NSSL CLAMPS Doppler Lidar Wind Profile Data

This data set contains vertical profiles of wind speed, wind direction, and vertical wind speed every two minutes from the Halo Streamline Doppler Lidar that was deployed as part of the OU/NSSL CLAMPS (Collaborative Lower Atmospheric Mobile Profiling System) site at the Scottsboro, Alabama airport for the Verification of the Origins of Rotation in Tornadoes Experiment-Southeast (VORTEX-SE) 2017 field season. These data are in NetCDF format and quicklook imagery are also included.
