Vertical wind profile data from 18th February to 28th April 2008 measured by the University of Manchester 1290 mhz mobile wind profiler deployed on long term observations at Capel Dewi, Wales
Vertical profiles of horizontal and vertical wind components as well as signal-to-noise (SNR) and spectal width measurements were collected at the NERC Mesosphere-Stratosphere-Troposphere radar facility site, Capel Dewi, near Aberystwyth, Ceredigion, Wales, between 18th February and 28th April 2008 as part of ongoing long term observations made by the NERC National Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS). These data were collected by the NCAS Atmospheric Measurement Facility's (AMF) 1290 MHz Mobile Wind Profiler, owned and operated by the University of Manchester and previously known as the aber-radar-1290mhz at the time of these observations. The data are available at 15 minute intervals as netCDF files to all registered BADC users under the Open Government License.
The dataset contains the following measurements:
Eastward wind velocity component
Northward wind velocity component
Upward air velocity
Direction the wind is from
Signal to noise ratio
Altitude of instrument above the ground
Longitude of instrument
Latitude of instrument
