Doppler radar spectra, observed by the Ka-Band ARM Zenith Radar (KAZR) during the 2018–2019 Cloud, Aerosol, and Complex Terrain Interactions (CACTI) field campaign in Argentina, have been reprocessed.
The data, originally ingested using the wrong version of the ingest software, have now been converted to the correct data format. The reprocessed data cover the period from December 2018 through early April 2019.
NOTE: None of the values stored in the files have been changed; only the netCDF data headers (variable names, etc.) have changed.
The original raw data from the radar were no longer available at the time of reprocessing, so the updating was done using the incorrectly formatted initial data set as the data source. As a result, some variables that exist only in the new netCDF file format could not be populated in the final data set. However, the data set’s primary variable, the Doppler radar spectra, is available and unchanged from the previous version.
Scientists now have one consistently formatted data set of KAZR Doppler spectra data for the entire CACTI campaign.
