MADIS NOAA Profiler Network Dataset

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: Wind profilers are Doppler radars used to measure vertical profiles of
atmospheric winds directly above the profiler site. Typical operation of a wind
profiler results in a vertical stack of winds every hour from near the earth's
surface to above the tropopause. The MADIS profiler dataset consists of hourly
winds from the NOAA Profiler Network, a quasi-operational network of wind
profilers located in the Central United States and Alaska.
