Millimeter Cloud Radar Doppler moments measurements

This data set includes measurements from a ground-based, vertically-pointing, Millimeter Cloud Radar (MMCR) which operates at 34-GHz. Data include time-height fields of radar reflectivity, mean Doppler velocity, and Doppler spectrum width, as well as cloud layer base and height as derived from the radar measurements. The MMCR is operated using 4 alternating acquisition modes, each optimized for unique atmospheric conditions. These modes are optimally combined using the ARSCL technique (Clothiaux et al. 2000 JAM) to provide a comprehensive radar measurement data set for the full troposphere. All files are in netCDF format and thus contain data set and field-specific attributes in the files.

This is a large data set; please access the data via:
