UAH MIPS 915 MHz Wind Profiler Data

This data set contains wind profiles from the University of Alabama-Huntsville (UAH) 915 MHz wind profiler during the 2016 VORTEX-SE field season. The 915 MHz wind profiler is part of the UAH Mobile Integrated Profiling System (MIPS) system. Data were collected for VORTEX-SE 2016 IOP1, 2, 3, 4A, 4B, 4C, and 4D. The raw data are in a binary format and the processed data are in a columnar ASCII format.
