Wyoming Cloud Radar 1Hz Data

The DYCOMS-II Aircraft: Wyoming Cloud Radar dataset is one of several upper air data sets collected by the National Center For Atmospheric Research/Earth Observing Laboratory (NCAR/EOL) as part of the Dynamics and Chemistry of Marine Stratocumulus Phase II: Entrainment Studies (DYCOMS-II) project. The WCR was mounted onboard the C130 in a downward looking configuration. Reflectivity and Doppler velocity were recorded for a nadir beam and a slanted beam. In this dataset the recorded data has been averaged to 1 sps, and ony the data from the nadir beam is included. Investigators wanting the full-rate or dual-beam data should contact a member of the WCR group. All data is in NetCDF format.
