Abstract

The Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL) Cloud Radar was deployed at the Natural Environment Research Council's (NERC) Mesosphere-Stratosphere-Troposphere (MST) Radar Facility, Capel Dewi, near Aberystwyth in West Wales from April 2005 to June 2006. These data are restricted to registered users for these data only.
