Lidar Measurement of the Planetary Boundary Layer from the NOAA Environmental Technology Laboratory
Entry ID: OAR0096

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This data set contains Doppler lidar measurements of the radial component of
wind velocity and products derived from these measurements. The data were
gathered during summer 1987 near Manhattan, Kansas as part of the First
International Satellite Land Surface Climatology Project (ISLSCP) Field
Experiment (FIFE). Data from July 11 have been used by the scientists of the
Wave Propagation ... View entire text
