Abstract

The North Atlantic Marine Boundary Layer Experiment (NAMBLEX) campaign was conducted at Mace Head in Ireland from 24 July 2002 to 3 September 2002. During this campaign a suite of instruments, including several from the Universities Facility for Atmospheric Measurements (UFAM). This dataset consists of vertical profiles of horizontal wind components plus backscatter values measured with the University of Leeds's Number 1 SODAR Instrument.
