atmcldradmace > Atmospheric State, Cloud Microphysics & Radiative FluxData Source Type(s) > PI

Atmospheric thermodynamics, cloud properties, radiative fluxes and radiative heating rates for the ARM Southern Great Plains (SGP) site. The data represent a characterization of the physical state of the atmospheric column compiled on a five-minute temporal and 90m vertical grid. Sources for this information include raw measurements, cloud property and radiative retrievals, retrievals and derived variables from other third-party sources, and radiative calculations using the derived quantities.


Data were collected in order to help and improve the climate and earth system models.
