New WACR Radar Data Available for AWARE Campaign

New WACR Radar Data Available for AWARE Campaign

Published: 16 November 2016

Data Announcements

The W-band ARM Cloud Radar-Active Remotely-Sensed Cloud Locations (WACR-ARSCL) provides cloud boundaries and best-estimate time-height fields of radar moments. WACR observations are corrected for velocity aliasing, and then significant detection masks are produced. The corrected WACR measurements are combined with observations from the micropulse lidar, ceilometer, soundings, rain gauge, and [...]
