Convective Storm Initiation Project (CSIP) Project: University of Leeds radiosonde data from Bath, Chilbolton and Preston Farm sites.
The Convective Storm Initiation Project (CSIP) aimed to further the understanding of the mechanisms responsible for the initiation of precipitating convection in the maritime environment of southern England; i.e. to understand why convective clouds form and develop into precipitating clouds in a particular location. The project was centred on the 3 GHz (CAMRa) and 1275 clear-air (ACROBAT) radars at Chilbolton and used a number of the new UK Universities' Facility for Atmospheric Measurement (UFAM) mobile instruments. This dataset includes measurements of wind speeds and wind directions and aerosol concentrations.
