Abstract: Metadata record for data from ASAC Project 1214
See the link below for public details on this project.
SODAR data (an acoustic radar) of atmospheric turbulence in inversion layer above South Pole during year 2000. Stored are the structure function and the horizontal and vertical wind speeds, as a function of height, every 30m from 20m to 890m. The data are stored as a tab delimited text file. The fields in this dataset are: Date CN2 Temperature Horizontal Wind Speed Vertical Wind Speed.
