Mountain Flow Experiments from the NOAA Environmental Technology LaboratoryEntry ID: OAR0078
Abstract: Mountain Flow Experiments are a collection of data sets generated from various
campaigns and episodic experiments. Together, Mountain Flow Experiments is one
of the most extensive collections of data that exists for mountain flows.
Depending on the particular campaign or experiment, data come from radar,
lidar, wind profilers, radio acoustic sounding systems (RASS), rawinsondes,
surface arrays, aircrafts, satellites, and various other instruments. Data
have been integrated, documented, and quality controlled only for a limited
number of case studies. Raw data are stored on magnetic tape, microfilm, and
paper. The quality of the raw data varies widely.
