Lidar Measurements in the CEDAR Data Base at NCAR/HAO

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: The Coupling, Energetics, and Dynamics of Atmospheric Regions (CEDAR)
Data Base at NCAR/HAO holds data collected from Lidar
measurements. Basic parameters measured include photocounts, relative
neutral number density, and sodium or iron density depending on
wavelength used. Neutral temperatures and winds can be derived from
the Lidar data, however, winds are not in the CEDAR Data Base. The
