Weather Radar Data

This dataset contains the weather radar (WXR) data collected during the High Ice Water Content (HIWC) Radar Study project, onboard the NASA DC-8 aircraft, that took place in Fort Lauderdale, Florida; Palmdale, California; and Kona, Hawaii. The radar measurements contained in this dataset have been processed to remove the instrument properties from the airborne radar data and thereby produce scientific measures of the atmosphere and the HIWC conditions. There are 3 different file types (RadProd, bitmap, and KMZ) containing radar measurements with each file type containing all of the flights in one zip file.
