Data from the Met Office's 915 MHz LAP3000 UHF (Ultra High Frequency) boundary layer wind profiler deployed at the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) Mesosphere-Stratosphere-Troposphere (MST) Radar Facility, Capel Dewi, near Aberystwyth in West Wales. The instrument was deployed from February 1995 to March 2002. These data are made available under the NERC-Met Office agreement.
