Abstract

Radar data collected in ice-phase clouds at the Chilbolton Observatory using radars at 3, 35 and 94 GHz during 2014-2015. The experimental setup is described in Stein et al (2015) DOI: 10.1002/2014GL062170 - see related documents section on this record. Raw pulse-to-pulse data were collected from all 3 radars, and have been post processed to common, synchronised time bins, for maximum ease of colocation.

These data were produced as part of the NERC funded Exploiting multi-wavelength radar Doppler spectra to characterise the microphysics of ice hydrometeors project (grant reference: NE/K012444/1).
