Abstract

This dataset contains the weather radar (WXR) data collected during the High Ice Water Content (HIWC) Radar Study project that took place in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The radar measurements contained in this dataset have been processed to remove the instrument properties from the airborne radar data and thereby produce the best scientific measure of the atmosphere and the HIWC environment. There are 4 different file types (List, RadProd, bitmap, and KMZ) containing radar measurements with each file type containing all of the flights in one file.
